Some of the special features of 1837online.com's census records include the following, as described by the company:
- When searching for an individual, you can also search simultaneously for another person who lived in the same household, simply by entering their name into the search criteria. This is a unique feature of our 1861 census and will help customers locate their ancestors more quickly and easily than in any other census online.
- There is a person search and an address search facility. With both facilities, there is an option to do a basic search or an advanced search.
- Every piece of information on the 1861 census has been transcribed, enabling customers to search on more fields than any other 1861 census.
- The search facility also aims to be as flexible as possible by allowing customers to include wildcards at the beginning and end of words; use keywords in some of the search fields; and search variants for forenames and surnames. We have also standardised place names so that customers can still find places that were initially misspelled.
