1841 on the BBC
A story is now on the BBC about the 1841 census being added to Ancestry. Here's an interesting tidbit:
Digitising the images from 1841 presented problems that had not been encountered with the other censuses.
"What was unique about the 1841 was that there were about 40,000 pages which were illegible on microfilm and we found that they were unacceptable," explains Josh Hanna, managing director of Ancestry.co.uk.
"So we sent over a team of people over to the National Archives to look at the originals. Around 6% of the pages required special scanning."
