Morebattle and Hownam now completed!!

Graham has finished linking another two Scottish parishes to maps and as I write this he is uploading them to the internet. The 1841, 1851 and 1861 census for Morebattle and Hownam (both in Roxburghshire) have now been linked to modern Google maps and the historical maps kept by the National Library of Scotland. So if your ancestors lived in either of these places then you can now see where their house was located.

I’m glad to see the numbers of visitors to our free census search keeps on increasing; I hope people are finding it useful. Remember we have the best of both worlds, you can search the census for free, we have provided full transcriptions and you can also have a copy of the original entry for just 50p! It’s also easy to request a photo of the house your ancestors once lived in. All these things add up to a full picture of your family, adding to the names and dates to make a colourful picture of your past.
