Over 440,100 new records are available to search this Findmypast Friday including:
Explore over 201,000 records to find out where your ancestor lived and who they were living with. The records consist of original collector’s books held by the State Records Authority of New South Wales. The 1891 census was conducted on 5th April 1891 and the collectors’ books are the only surviving documents. While they provide less detail than a full census would, they can still be a useful aid to historians and genealogists alike in placing people at a specific moment in time.
Each result will provide you with a transcript and image of the original collector’s books from the 1891 census. Original images may provide you with additional details, such as the number of individuals living in the same household or the number of residents who were Aboriginal or Chinese.
