Welsh Genealogy

If you are searching for ancestors from Wales, you will enjoy the 1911 Welsh census.

It provides online access to the records of 2.4 million people living in Wales in 1911. Anyone can use the index to locate ancestors. To view the original record, there is a small fee.

The census covers Wales, England, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, as well as those aboard Royal Naval and Merchant vessels at sea and in foreign ports. It also includes details of British Army personnel and their families in military establishments overseas.

The 1911 census is provided in association with The National Archives of the U.K. and Find My Past, which helps you locate living family members, immigrants, and Welsh ancestors from the 16th century to the present.
