I don't know if you have heard of this site. Several months
ago I read about it on some Yorkshire lists. It's a site
that you enter details of your ancestors or blood relatives
( siblings, cousins etc of your ancestors), as they appear
on the 1881 census (there is a place to put additional info
like maiden name or the name on the census shows as Eliza &
it's really Alision, or the real age of the person).
If it finds a match with someone who has put in exactly the
same person as you, you can then contact each other. The
guy on the YKS list asked if anyone wanted a referral to
join this site, I waited a few weeks as he got swamped with
replies, he never got back to me.
I never followed it up but just read two articles on it in
some family history mags, so have joined. The site covers
the 1881 census for Scotland, Wales and England. It's free
to join. Sometime next year they may add a "full" membership
fee, that will give additional benefits to those who pay
compared to the free loaders.
If you wish me to provide you with a referral code, please
