You can now find your ancestors in this ‘1939 census’ by using keywords (eg occupation or date of birth), by using an address, or even by forename.

Once you’ve found a family record in the Register, click on the street name to see the neighbours on that street, and perhaps find other relatives living nearby.

By using The Genealogists’s SmartSearch facility, you can jump straight to an ancestor’s birth, marriage of death record too.

Two further reminders.

  • The 1939 Register lists people with their full dates of birth (so often better than an age in a census record or a GRO index reference).

Do’t forget, with The Centre for Heritage and Family History closed at present, The Genealogist remains accessible to members who sign into the society website (under Info) – one more benefit of society membership!
