FreeCEN is part of
an initiative aimed at helping make high quality primary (or near-primary)
records of relevance to UK genealogy conveniently and freely available
online, in a coherent, easy to access and search, information retrieval
Other projects associated with the FreeUKGEN initiative are FreeBMD and FreeREG.
Many volunteers world-wide are working on the transcription.
The number of volunteers has grown since its inception in 1999 to 125 in December 2000. It doubled to 250 for June 2001, over 500 in 2003 and currently has 2000+ as of July 2005.
We are constantly looking for new volunteers. We need help with Transcribing and Checking. We transcribe and check from Micro Fiche and from CD's, so you have a choice depending upon which Census year you volunteer to help with. To contact the Coordinator for a County that you are interested in helping with, please look at the Transcription page.
As well as the 1891 Census we are also working on the 1841. 1851, 1861 and 1871 census. We are continually adding new transcriptions. For further details of how we are progressing please look at the following statistics page on http://www.freecen.org.uk/statistics.html
Please remember to keep coming back to check as we add more Census DATA.
