1861 Census Index on CD-ROM
Available Right NOW!!!



The indexing of the census returns for all of the Lanarkshire Parishes in 1851 is now complete and available on microfiche; these do not include Glasgow, Barony or Govan. My other long term project, the indexing of the 1861 census returns for Lanarkshire, is also complete, these cover ALL OF LANARKSHIRE including, of course, Barony, Glasgow and Govan, they are available on microfiche. I sincerely hope they will be of assistance to those researching their family history. A map, showing the ten Registration Districts of Glasgow in 1861 is included in the introductory pages. A map of the 37 registration districts of Lanarkshire is shown on the relevant fiche.
