Scots Origins new data
The 1901 census is now available online, with images of the original
returns, so that for Scotland users now have access to three census years:
1901, 1891 – both with images – and 1881. The index records for the 1900
births and marriage records and 1925 death records have now been uploaded,
bringing the total number of index records now available on Scots Origins to
over 36 million.
Mind you, I just tried a single test search of ALL the indexes available
there on the name McDuff, shows there are over 2000 of them but none
apparently on the 1901 census !!
I didn't delve any further than that, would have cost money.
Never mind, I expect they're still fine tuning it, at least the site is
easily accessible/searchable which was in itself quite a novel experience
for a deprived Wales researcher :-(.
Just read that the PRO has announced re OUR 1901 site;
"Access to the census site will not available today, Friday 25 January.
Please check for updates on this website [ http://www.pro.gov.uk/
visiting one of the Service Centres. "
