New FreeCen Website

Did you know that  FreeCEN gives free access to census records for England, Scotland & Wales?

FreeCEN offers a free-to-search online database of the 19th century UK censuses. Transcribed entirely by volunteers, they have more than 32 million individuals available on their website that anyone can search without having to create an account. The new FreeCEN2 website launched on Monday 31st July 2017 with all of the records that the current website holds, but with a fresh new look and feel in-line with Free UK Genealogy and FreeREG.

Their new website will offer more features for researchers, and make it easier for people to find what they’re looking for. FreeCEN2 also brings with it a host of improvements for existing and future volunteers, such as a members sign-in area and brand new messaging system.

FreeCEN, FreeREG and FreeBMD are projects by Free UK Genealogy, a registered charity that promotes free access to historical records. FreeREG underwent this process in 2015, and FreeBMD is due to begin its renewal later this year.
