Hi
I'm very new to this and really don't know what I'm doing. I've been on the census but struggling to find past relatives but on the ones I have found I would likento know who they lived with and what their occupations were. Can any one tell me how to do this please?

Are you looking at the actual census sheets or relying on some index? Sounds like an index.

The information you are asking is ON the census sheets.

I suggest you join a local genealogical society or/and start accumulating a library for doing genealogy research. There are also plenty of online suggestions for starting your own genealogy with information on the various resources we use.

The City Directory database is another good option for finding the occupations of your ancestors.
