The Enumerator strikes back
02/11/2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
A talk by David Annal.
Dave Annal has more than 40 years’ experience as a family historian. A former Principal Family History Specialist at The National Archives, Dave has written a number of bestelling family history books and is a regular contributor to Family Tree magazine.
The enumerators first went to work on the UK census in 1841 and have performed a vital role in each successive decennial census ever since then. It hasn’t always been an easy ride: confronted by hostile householders and at the mercy of the decisions made by the census authorities, their stories shed a fascinating light on one of the most important sets of records used by family historians today. Using original documents, contemporary newspaper reports and the census returns themselves, this talk will turn the spotlight onto the men and women who created the UK’s census returns.
