Format: Paperback
I genuinely can't find fault with this book. It is clear that Emma Jolly is an expert in her field and this will be a vital tool for anyone struggling to make sense of their family history from the available census information. It is comprehensive and accessible if you are a beginner and doesn't limit itself to online resources, enabling the enthusiast to trace records that may have been kept before the 1841 data available online. I also found it to be particularly useful in identifying problems you may come across identifying the right family or individual and offering the background detail necessary to build a social history of a family, rather than just a list of names and dates, although if that is your thing there are clear tables and lists providing details of online and local resources available.

This is a book to encourage us to delve more deeply into our family history, encouraging you to visit local records offices and libraries. I have been undertaking family history research for many years and now know there is still a lot more to discover!

Nothing gets my goat more than conflicting information. An example from page six gives the date of the census as Tuesday the 20th of March 1801, however turn to Appendix 2 (page 181) neatly titled Census Dates and the date for 1801 is given as Tuesday the 10th of March. Given that this recently published book is exclusively about the history of the census, I would have expected that the data could be relied on. The Pen & Sword guide to the census is detailed, the font is a good size, there are useful contents and index sections and the style is easy to follow.

This is a terrific reference book and explains a lot about the various British Census. I know that it will be used over and over when I am doing my genealogy work. I would highly recommend to anyone who has ancestors in the UK and wants to know more about their family history.
