The National Archives is holding a one day conference at Kew on Saturday 1 October 2011. The conference is for anyone who wants to know more about the census – from genealogists to local and social historians.
The conference will look at all aspects of the census and at what this rich source of information can tell us about our ancestors and society through the ages. Speakers will include specialist staff from The National Archives, academics and professional genealogists. Ancestry, Findmypast and Genesreunited will also be offering hands-on workshops on census searching.
