Pinpoint ancestors homes from the 1911 census on historic maps 24th December 2021

Travel back in time and locate an ancestor's address from the 1911 England and Wales census using contemporary and georeferenced maps on our Map Explorer™.

For the first time the properties recorded in the 1911 census can now be matched with mapping to show where our English or Welsh ancestors had lived at that time. The majority of London can be seen down to property level, while the rest of the country currently will identify down to parish, road or street with house level matching as new areas are processed.

This groundbreaking feature allows you to pin down your ancestors to properties on a contemporary map at the time of the census in 1911. With this feature family historians are able to walk the streets where their ancestors lived as not only can it be accessed on a computer but also on the move on a mobile phone!

This is an invaluable tool for house historians making it easier than ever to link census records to properties and complementing the already rich georeferenced Lloyd George Domesday Survey and Tithe records that are already available on Map Explorer™.

Watch our short video on the new release and see the records in action :
