New English and Irish Census

In the last couple of weeks two new census have been released onto the Internet. Irish family researchers were given an early Christmas present when the 1911 Irish Census was made available on the Internet. It is very easy to search and is available free to users of the Internet.

The English 1911 census was released a few days ago. Personally i do not find it as easy to use as the Irish census, although it has an interesting feature. You can search for a house and find out the names of the residents. If your house was standing at the time of the 1911 census,then you are able to view the residents who lived there at the time. Unlike the Irish census which is free to view,the English census will only reveal the answers to your searching when you cash in your paid credits.
See what you think for yourself, here are the links to view the Irish and English census.
