Enumerators’ summary book images are live on findmypast.com
Our sister-site findmypast.com has now added a full set of 1911 census enumerators’ summary book (RG78) images, all of which can be viewed via their new subscription. When you view a 1911 census image on findmypast.com you will now see links to the accompanying summary book pages in the frame above the image (as shown below).
Find out what it was like in your ancestors’ neighbourhood
The enumerators’ summary book (RG78) images are filled with useful information about the neighbourhoods in which your ancestors lived and they can also reveal details of relatives living nearby.
The new images include:
• the front page of the volume in which the enumerator’s summary sheet was stored.
• enumerator’s summary original page - this not only shows the names of heads of households and how many people occupied the houses (showing you the neighbours), but also lists other buildings, whether houses or not.
• population statistics for the area.
• a description of the Enumerator’s walk.
• a map of the Enumerator’s walk (in some cases).
New household schedule images
As well as the RG78s, we’ve added some extra RG14 household (or institution) schedule images, which also make interesting viewing:
• The address panel from the back of the schedule, showing the address as written by your ancestors and the registration district and subdistrict
• The front page of the volume in which your schedule was stored, giving more detailed information on parishes and districts
Please note: some household schedules do NOT have Enumerators Summary Books, as a small number did not survive.
