Family History - 1881 Census.
The 1881 census was taken on the 3rd of April 1881.
census is online, complete, and totally free of charge thanks to the
Church of Latter Day Saints site here. Just
click on the drop menu tab on the 'census' line and choose the 1881 census.
Then fill in as much information as you want to. The results will depend
on how common the name was, and may result in several hundreds or even
thousands of results. Just because you believe you know the exact age
of your family at that time, does not mean that they entered that age
on the census. Illiteracy was widespread at that time, and not everyone
would have known their exact year of birth. For this reason, always allow
at least + or minus 5 years in the year range drop down menu.
There is a 'Free Census' online website that eventually aims to have all of the censuses including the 1881, online free to search and view. You can access it here.
