Here's a short message from Ancestry.co.uk:
In celebration of St Andrew's Day,
Ancestry.co.uk is pleased to announce the arrival of a double
1851 & 1861 census special for Scotland. This follows the release earlier
this year of our first Scottish census for 1841.
The 1851 & 1861 Scottish censuses
contain some fantastic detail on names and characters whose enduring
legacies are known across the world, such as:
Sir Thomas Lipton, grocer, and philanthropist
who revolutionised the retail grocery trade or the noted author of
Kidnapped and Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson, both of whom
would have been 1 year old or less at the time of the 1851 census.
Other luminaries from the world of literature as well
as science and design include Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Alexander Graham
Bell, inventor of the modern day telephone, John Boyd Dunlop,
founder of Dunlop tyres and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, renowned
Scottish architect and designer and main exponent of Art Noveau in
Fully searchable, transcribed indexes, including
address and occupational search capability for possibly the first time
ever on these censuses. Details about parents, siblings and other
relations who lived with them.
