Scottish 1841-1911 census street indexes go online

From the ScotlandsPeople Centre:

The street indexes for the Scottish Censuses from 1841 to 1911 can now be viewed for free on www.scotlandspeoplehub.gov.uk. Look under the 'Research' tab and then select the heading 'Census Records up to 1911'. You select the Census year and then the street indexes are arranged in urban areas. These books are useful because they show whether a street existed at that time and which registration district and enumeration book covered that area.

COMMENT: Handy! :)

Also - the ScotlandsPeople Centre will be closed for its autumn holiday on September 19th. So please don't go to Edinburgh to research your ancestors on that day - or the only story you will be able to tell will be your own, and it won't be a happy one!

(With thanks to the ScotlandsPeople Centre)
