Webinar: Missing from the census?

Census records are invaluable sources of information for all family historians. But what if you can’t find your ancestor on the census? This webinar will look at useful search tips that will help you to locate hard-to-find people, as well as exploring possible reasons for their absence and providing pointers for where else you could look.

    I would so love to have perfect hearing but I haven’t and neither have many older people who are often the ones doing family history research. I have mild hearing loss so wear hearing aids. Please would you add subtitles to your webinars. That would mean that they could be enjoyed by everyone regardless of hearing ability/disability.

      Hi Hilary,

      Thank you for your message. If you click on the ‘Watch video on YouTube’ link, you can use the ‘Subtitles/close captions’ option on the YouTube website to see subtitles for our webinars.

      Kind regards,

    I could not hear well on my laptop so added my earphones- even harder to hear!
