Wellbelove Genealogy England & Wales Census Updated

The England & Wales Census pages have been updated. You can do a full search of any, or all of the 1851, 1881 & 1911 censuses in the Guild of One-Name Studies Wellbelove Archive

As an example try searching for 'Isaac' (there is only one!) in any year. It will return 3 hits for the same person. If you do a household search in the 1851 census, you will see him living with his mother Jemima and siblings. A household search in 1881 will find him living with his wife Racheal, and in 1911, as a widower.

A search for William will not only return anybody who's first name is recorded as William, but those where their middle name is William. It will also return anyone recorded as Willm, Wm, etc. Similarly, searches for Thomas will also return Thos, and Elizabeth will also return Elizth. You only need to enter the first 3 letters of a forename, so Ann will return any occurrences of Ann, Anne, Annie, etc.
