Welsh 1911 census on The Genealogist

From The Genealogist (www.thegenealogist.co.uk):

We have now added over 2.3 million records to our Diamond Premium subscription, releasing all 13 counties for Wales! These include:

Anglesey
Brecknockshire
Caernarvonshire
Cardiganshire
Carmarthenshire
Denbighshire
Flintshire
Glamorganshire
Merionethshire
Monmouthshire
Montgomeryshire
Pembrokeshire
Radnorshire

The transcripts provide more detail than any previous census and the images on TheGenealogist are twice the resolution than have been available online before for 1911. The records have been integrated into our existing search tools, so you can access the transcripts using our House and Street search, Keyword Master search and Family Forename search.

We have also released the complete Huntingdonshire 1911 Census, with over 48,000 records.

We now have approximately 8 million 1911 records online.


Further images can also now be browsed:

Diamond subscribers can now search three quarters of the 1911 Census images online at TheGenealogist. These are indexed by County, Registration District and Sub District. You can then choose the ED (Enumeration District) number and the page you would like to look at. There is a step-by-step guide on how to use the 1911 Census image viewer within our research guide.

If you are unsure of the page or ED number, you can simply start at the beginning and work your way through the images. We have 49 out of the 62 counties available, with the rest to follow shortly.
