Ancestry updates 1911 census holdings

From Ancestry (

1911 Census – Improved!

We’ve made two major improvements to our 1911 Census making it even more essential in the search for your family’s past.

First of all we’ve released brand new record images, which include the ‘Infirmity’ column that was previously hidden. You can now see if any of your relatives were deaf or blind, or coped with a mental illness.

Plus, we’ve linked the records to our UK Maps, 1896-1904, supplied by Cassini Historical Maps. Once you’ve found your family in the Census, you can jump straight to a map revealing the area they lived in.
