1911 England and Wales Census Collection

The 1911 England and Wales Census has been available on line for a while but it is not free to view the records. Ancestry.co.uk now has the full 1911 Census and i think they give the best value for money. For Australians who are researching their Ancestors from the UK ,it works out cheaper to take out a monthly membership with Ancestry.co.uk.I think it was about 17 dollars after it had been converted. I recently found a record on the 1911 English Census that i had been looking for,for about two years. http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/group/1911uki

Titanic Survivor Interview

On the 15th of April 2012 it will be 100 years since the Titanic sunk on its maiden voyage. I came across this interview that was recorded in 1969. Edwina Celia Mackenzie was a 27 year old single girl on her way back home to America when the Titanic hit an Iceburg and sunk. At the time of this recording she was 85 years old.
