Millions of homes featured on the 1901 Census now plotted on georeferenced maps: new online release


14 June 2022
Explore your ancestor's surroundings as they would have been at the time of the 1901 Census for England and Wales
TheGenealogist has announced a major new release, with family and house historians now able to explore the areas where their ancestors lived, worked and socialised.

Following on from their recent releases of the 1939 Register and the 1911 Census records linked to contemporary and modern map layers on TheGenealogist’s Map Explorer™, now the same features have been applied to the 1901 Census of England and Wales.

With this release, Diamond subscribers are able to pinpoint where their ancestors’ properties were at the time of the census count and so metaphorically walk the streets from the comfort of their home. Alternatively, users may access TheGenealogist on their mobile phone to physically discover the neighbourhood while on the move.

This key tool can make the lives of the family or house historian easier than ever to research census records for buildings.

The majority of the London area and other towns and cities are viewable down to the property level, while other parts of the country will identify down to the parish, road or street.

With this new release, viewing a household record from the 1901 census will now show a map, locating your ancestors' house. Clicking on this map loads the location in Map Explorer™, enabling you to explore the area and see the records of neighbouring properties.

Explore this dataset with a Diamond subscription at TheGenealogist.
