UK Census Records on Ancestry Library Edition

Do you have ancestors or cousins hiding in the England and Wales census records 1841 to 1901? Have you found them in those census records?

Ancestry Library Edition provides access to those census records, but you can access ALE only at subscribing libraries. In the San Diego area, Chula Vista, San Diego city, Carlsbad and San Diego County library systems have access at all branches (I'm not sure about other libraries). In other areas, you should check at your local libraries.

For those persons that have only a US Deluxe Subscription to www.Ancestry.com, and need to access England and Wales records, going to a library with access to Ancestry Library Edition is a much cheaper solution than signing up for a World deluxe subscription to Ancestry.com.

However, you are out of luck if you need Scotland or Canada census records - you need the World Deluxe subscription. By far the cheapest way to find those records is to wait for a free trial offer on www.ancestry.com that provides access to them.

Or there may be a friendly forum online who will help people looking for British Census records. I have a UK subscription to Ancestry(as my family & I are British), but anyone who needs help with British records of most kinds may be able to find help at AncestryAid.co.uk I am a member myself and as well as helping others I have also found help there.
