|I am please to announce the continued success of the Scotland FreeCEN project. We currently have over 1,000,000 million entries online with more being uploaded regularly. This is part of the larger UK FreeCen Project - an Internet-based 'free-to-view' database that will enable researchers to view details of UK Censuses between the years 1841 and 1891, especially the ability to search by surname across census years and counties. I am the Scotland coordinator and am sending out an appeal for volunteers for all parishes.
All you need to take part is a computer. We supply everything else including the CD and the software. This project is a global on-line venture designed for ordinary family historians wherever they are, who would like to make a contribution to our great hobby.
Most counties are currently working on the 1841 Scotland Census, and while some have moved on to 1851, there is still a need for organizers in the following counties.
If you are interested in learning more, please contact me, Michelle Jeffery, at chilitech.net
