Huge reductions to view Engand & Wales 1911 Census

Find My Past is offering vastly reduced access to the 1911 census for England and Wales until the end of the month.

Instead of paying 30 credits to view an original image of a census return, or 10 credits for a transcript, the January costs will be 10 credits for an image and 5 credits for a transcript.

Such big reductions make this an offer worth taking up if you've got ancestors who crossed the Irish Sea to England or Wales.

The discount has been introduced to coincide with the availability of previously 'redacted' details. Under the 100-year rule, health information was not allowed to be made public. Nor was information about infants having been born in prison. Such details can now be seen by any researcher.

As announced in yesterday's post, the database provider is also running a 10% discount for its main collections. You can access both the dedicated 1911 census site (where the reduced prices will automatically apply until 31 January), and the main collections (where you need to use the promotion code NEWYEAR12 to receive the 10% discount) at Find My
