Hi,
I see you are having problems with the 1901 census! I did too!
I found that if you did not put the exact info as per the census, then it would come up as a 'not found'. I had several I knew should be there! but weren't!
So I tried several ways.like putting first name age with plus/minus a couple of years. and birth place. or surname and likewise.
Just for instance I couldn't find a family, and couldn't see how they all could all be missing. so I tried the youngest child who was 15 but couldn't find her as Greener, so thought she might of married even being so young! so I put her name age [plus/minus 3 years] and birth place and found a 'Alice Preener' checked out the other members of the family and found them all living together!
Also found another surname that should of been PEET as PECT. also a first name that should of been MARY as MARGT So play around with it
I tried to look at it just now, but it's off air being maintained
I''l keep trying too, and if I find anything will let you know.
Regards Dawn Hurst
