For todays Blog Prompt we’ll be looking at the Census.
The Census I’m highlighting for ‘Census Sunday’ is the 1911 Census England
I think for me the 1911 Census data set is a favourite, the way Ancestry has done this data set, is more interactive. you can scroll up & down or from side to side and you still get to see who and what you’re looking at.
I’ve also picked out just a few of the more ‘unusual’ occupations in 1911 Census within my tree.
The above image is also an example of some ‘unusual’ occupations. Joseph Baldwin is working as a Woodman and his relationship to me is 2nd great grand uncle. Joseph’s son Frank is working as a Gamekeeper, relationship to me is 1st cousin 3x removed
Heres a couple more
William Alfred Worland is working in the Leather Trade as a bag maker. William Alfred Worland’s relationship to me is 1st cousin 3x removed
William Waterman is working as a Letter Press Printer. William Waterman’s relationship to me is 2nd great grand uncle
That’s all I have for now, so till next time, stay tuned for some more Ancestry Adventures!
