Graham and I have been so busy over the last few months that we thought we would have a review of how far we have come with the census mapping project. If you have been following this blog for a while you will know we started with just Peeblesshire mapped back in September. We have come a long way since then!
Our 1841 census database is now 51% mapped, the 1851 is 31% mapped and the 1861 census is 53% mapped.
Graham is working on Hawick and Wilton at the moment and they should both be updated shortly. He’s doing these parishes as a pair because the town of Hawick is split between two parishes and as the town is the hardest area to map he thought it would be better to do them together. Graham has actually just told me that Wilton Parish is complete and uploading now.
