Welcome to the home page for the RUTLAND FreeCEN project. This aims to provide a "FREE TO VIEW" online searchable database of the 19th century census returns of the UK.

It is part of the FreeUKGEN project together with the other two members, FreeBMD, transcribing the indexes of the civil registrations of births marriages and deaths and FreeREG transcribing parish registers.

The transcriptions are carried out using CD's provided to us by the LDS. A blank spreadsheet template is provided together with full instructions.

Michael Borrill is the co-ordinator for RUTLAND and please contact Michael if you are interested in joining us.
