The Enumerator Strikes Back 
Tuesday 20 June 2017, 19:30 - 21:30
Dave FosterHits : 541 

This meeting has been rearranged from 13th June due to road disruptions.

David Annal discusses the Census Enumerators.

The enumerators first went to work on the UK census in 1841 and have performed a vital role in every one since. It hasn’t always been an easy ride: confronted by hostile householders and at the mercy of the decisions made by the census authorities, their stories shed a fascinating light on one of the most important sets of records used by family historians today. Using original documents, contemporary newspaper reports and the census returns themselves, the talk will turn the spotlight on the men and women who created the UK’s census returns.
