The Census: What's the Fuss?
Censuses are among the best resources for anyone interested in local and family history. Taken every 10 years they create a snapshot of history that we can look back into and interrogate. They allow us to delve farther than many other records as they provide details on family relationships, occupations, and other social settings such as habitations, farms, industry and more besides. This exhibition looks at some of these aspects and hopes to reveal just what you can find and how exciting it is.
