TheGenealogist has released the records of 83,498 individuals for the Lambeth area into its Lloyd George Domesday Survey property ownership and occupancy record set.
This resource includes maps and field books, and gives family historians the chance to discover where an ancestor lived in the period just before and as the First World War began. This is a good tool to use with the 1911 census (more information on this census here), giving lots of additional information about your ancestors' home, land, outbuildings and property.
How do I use the records?
The maps are linked to field books containing descriptions of the property, as well as revealing owners and occupiers, all of which have been sourced from The National Archives and are being digitised by TheGenealogist.
With this release it is possible to precisely locate where an ancestor lived on a number of large scale, hand annotated maps for this part of London. These plans include plots for the exact properties at the time of the survey and are layered over various georeferenced historical maps and modern base maps on the Map Explorer™ at TheGenealogist.
This resource enables you to thoroughly investigate the area in which an ancestor lived even if the streets were bombed in the Blitz and the modern redevelopment does not follow the same lines as the previous roads had.
