Ancestry.co.uk has finished adding the second part of the 1911 Census transcriptions. Records covering London, Lancashire, Yorkshire and 17 other counties are now fully searchable.
Unlike any previous censuses, this one provides you with the actual forms your ancestors filled in, complete with their handwriting and signatures.
Here’s a full list of the areas that are now searchable:
Isle of Man
Yorkshire – East Riding
Yorkshire – North Riding
Yorkshire – West Riding
All the scanned records are now available online with more than half of them now searchable. Ancestry.co.uk is still working on the remaining transcriptions with an expected completion date in 2012.
