Borders census mapping update

Emma Maxwell has given a quick progress report on the census mapping project for the Borders being undertaken by herself and her husband Graham. The project seeks to connect the households listed in the census to an online map hosted by the National Library of Scotland in an innovative and exciting project which also attempts, where possible, to link households between censuses from 1841-1861.

The current state of play is that 51% of the 1841 census has now been mapped, 1851 is 31% mapped and 1861 census 53% mapped.
