We had intended to go to the Yorkshire Family History Fair in York today. But best laid plans and all that – the weather wasn’t very good and I was full of aches and pains and couldn’t face it.
So we stayed at home. But I didn’t want to waste the day altogether. I decided to crack on with more work on my Espley One Name Study.
I was already part way through transcribing the 1891 UK census into my spreadsheet, so my target was to get that completed by the end of today. I am happy to say that I finished at 4.20pm – having started at about 10.30 this morning. I am now settled down watching Glastonbury on the telly.
Tomorrow I hope to set up the next spreadsheet for the 1901 census and maybe get that transcribed in the next four or five weeks.
As I am not a subscriber to Find My Past I will wait until Ancestry get the 1911 census digitised before starting on that.
So maybe after finishing the 1901 census I will start to track individuals from birth through to death and build some family trees. That’s the bit I am really looking forward to.
