Herefordshire Census[edit source]

Thanks for your assistance; the image caption removal is a headache and the inclusion of redundant gazetteer material is not helping the formation of county pages particularly when they relate to medieval history and the present church is 19th century! Had to chuckle at Canterbury being discovered in Ipswich Suffolk. Unfortunately geography is not an evident strength amongst those constructing pages in English counties in this wiki. The use of American spellings is another disadvantage  something I don't think I have "gotten" used to yet! I always thought how you pronounce schedule depended on which kind of shool or school you attended! Whodares 15:10, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

We have the additional complication of Herefordshire and Worcestershire which crops up regularly see Edvin Loach, Worcestershire Genealogy but thankfully with JH to quote we can but hope for improvement in the FamilySearch handling of counties and civil parishes. Amberley 14:44, 16 January 2012 (UTC) we can only include census microfilm links where it can be identifed in the Family History Library presentation and hope that will improve. The reliance on gazetteer material from 1848 is of little help to civil parishes which appear for one county and not for another, Kent has civil parish listing for Kent Parishes but other counties do not.These need resolution by FamilySearch not individual contributors as they are FamilySearch organisational and management issues. Frustrating for English genealogists!

Indeed, let us hope that the review of the FamilySearch microfilm catalogue promised produces better presentation; to find no census returns for a town in Kent ( Broadstairs) and numerous villages in the county suggests all is not well in that respect! Hostelry 07:46, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
