Mining the English Censuses: Beyond Discovering Your Family

We are all familiar with using the censuses as a source for our English ancestors. There we can discover a range of information including occupation, location, names of children, and movement around the county and/or country. However, a great deal more can be learned from these censuses.

In this presentation we will explore how the censuses can be used to gather different kinds of information such as changes in locations over time, the spread of names in various area, and the predominant occupations in a given place and time. In particular ‘A Vision of Britain Over Time’ and ‘Histpop.org’ will be introduced and the many forms of census information, both micro and macro, available on these sites.

Presenter: Yvonne Masters

Yvonne has a background in education, both as a teacher, particularly of English and History, and as a university lecturer in teacher education. She has been researching her own and her husband’s family histories for over 40 years and, now retired, genealogy is her passion, making her question how she ever found time to work! After retiring, Yvonne decided to undertake study in the area of genealogy and family history and has completed the UTAS Diploma of Family History, the Pharos Intermediate Certificate of Family History, and also the suite of Pharos One Name Study units. She has also completed SAG’s Certificate of Genealogical Research and Diploma of Family Historical Studies.
