Census Detectives

We are small troupe of family historians from the Society of Genealogists who over the last 12 years travel to various family history fairs and conferences in England and Wales showing people how to make best use of the internet for their research.

With years of experience and understanding of the intricacies of online indexes and databases the Census Detectives provide the opportunity to sit down and have a personal consultation and see if that elusive census or BMD entry really can’t be found.

The census is also your launchpad to other records:

              • Newspapers

              • Parish Registers

              • Probate Records

              • Electoral Rolls

              • Civil Registration

                • Birth, Marriage & Death Records

Discover the place of your ancestors...
