Busy week for FamilySearch and UK records

Following my report on Wednesday about the upload by Family Search of indexes from the 1841 and 1851 Scottish censuses, yet more records from the UK have appeared.

For clarity, here's a list of the indexes that have been added in the last week:
  • 1841 Scottish census
  • 1851 Scottish census
  • 1861 Scottish census
  • 1871 Scottish census
  • 1871 England and Wales census (this is 81% complete)

The Scottish indexes contain a total of 11.9million records. The uploaded England and Wales indexes hold just a fraction below 4.6million.

Note the word index, however. There are no images. For those you have to go to either Scotland's People or
