There is nothing on the site to tell us, but you can register and you will receive postings of updates.  Or, they say, you can read their blog : http://blog.1911census.co.uk/

The following is the email notification sent out by 1911census.co.uk

We wanted you to be the first to know that the 1911census.co.uk website launches officially tomorrow.

We have added many more of the counties that were unavailable on the beta site over Christmas, including Lancashire, Essex, Kent, Yorkshire (West Riding), Nottinghamshire and Herefordshire. We continue to scan the remainder of the census and will make the remaining counties available as soon as possible. A full list of the counties available at launch, and those still to come, appears at the end of this email.

We expect the site to be very busy at first, and so we have taken a number of measures to make sure that as many people as possible can get their searches completed successfully. The first is that we have deliberately restricted some of the search functions on the site, meaning that the search is not as flexible as it will be later on. Secondly, we are only allowing users to download original pages, rather than view them directly on the website.

Obviously, we will 'unlock' the powerful search features and switch on image viewers as soon as possible after launch and let you know by email and via the blog when we have done this.

During launch, if the site becomes exceptionally busy, we will also restrict the number of new people entering the site. We want to allow the people who are already using the site to complete their searches rather than make the site impossibly slow for everybody. We have built the site to withstand a very large (but not infinite) number of visitors, so if you find that you are not being allowed in, please bear with us. Real-time service updates can be found on our blog, which we advise you to check frequently for the latest news.

Finally, we know many of you are as excited as we are to see the remaining counties that will become available over the coming months. However, we cannot give you specific launch dates for these remaining counties - we are continuing to scan the census into the spring and anticipate that the census will be complete by this summer. Rest assured that by staying signed up to our newsletter and checking the blog, you will be the first to know of all new developments.

Thank you to all those who participated in the beta period and we wish you the very best of success in using the 1911census.co.uk website to broaden your family history research.

Another great example of Southern bias. We'll send it out, but bugger them up North, they can wait.  :evil:

Hi - you probably know already, but the 1911 census for Durham came online at the end of March. Still waiting for Northumberland (and Gateshead, which was apparently thought to be there and not Durham!!)

I've spent a bit of time looking at the recently added 1911 Census results for Durham.  One thing that's an interesting addition is that the Census now records "Total number of live children born" to a couple.  Thus I've discovered that my Grandfather had 4 siblings who died in infancy in addition to the 3 I already knew about....  It also gives individual addresses.

One family member lived in South View, Ferryhill- on today's map I can only find that as a general area in The Broom- rather than a particular street.  Does anyone know where it used to be (and when it disappeared)?

Only a guess, but didn't there use to be a short street behind Dene Road facing south?

South View was a terraced street in Chilton, demolished in 1973. and now forms the grassed area outside the primary school. But as Chilton is also included in Ferryhills postal area perhaps that's the one you're looking for.

I'm not aware there was a street of the same name at Ferryhill too. As the one behind Dean Road which has been previously mentioned is South Side not South View.

Unless anyone else has any ideas?

Ferryhill lass,

You need to look at the enumerators summary to find which area his count covered. Also, look at the streets adjoining the one your relative lived in. If it was Chilton there would bo other Chilton streets there too. The suspicion though is that you won't be able to do this online and you'll have to look at fiche or microfilm copies.

Good thinking!  I haven't got enough time at the moment to devote to this- but once I DO, I'll give that a try.

Thanks to VS too.
