original aim of our census project was to provide access to the
census records in full, in your own home, on both PC and Mac and
at a reasonable cost. The most effective solution was to transfer
these records onto CD. These images are then accessible by area
and by use of the searchable Street indexes.
Marriage certificates and Post Office Directories can also help
find the address of your ancestors.
Now our aim is to index and transcribe the census giving you the
maximum flexibility by searching our online databases for your ancestors.
The Genealogist is the home to our indexing projects and the UK
Indexer is a volunteer site where specialist tools
are provided to search out any rogue data. The tools provide a way
of just dipping your toe into the world of indexing without committing
