Free census access on March 27th

To commemorate the recording of the next census, Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk) is offering 24 hours free access to all of its UK census collections from 1841-1901 on March 27th, including those for Scotland.

For more on the offer visit Ancestry's Kelly Godfrey's post at http://blogs.ancestry.com/uk/2011/03/21/free-census-access-%e2%80%93-27th-march/

Bear in mind that Ancestry's transcriptions for Scotland do not include marital status, or details about knowledge of Gaelic from 1891 onwards - however the databases do have more search fields available than on the ScotlandsPeople website.

(With thanks to Ancestry)
