I have the Archival Reference Numbers for my paternal great grandparents,
Solomon and Sarah ISAACS (#s 20742540 & 20742541, respectively). How do I
download copies of their census records, knowing the reference number --
where do I go (what mode/page/link) do I go to download them, etc.?
PRO's Test Site (under the heading "Census Charges" - Page 2 of 2) states:
"if you know the exact reference of the census image you wish to view, you
can access it directly. Some <page types> are FREE to view." Unfortunately
there doesn't seem to be a field for inserting the requisite number while
you are doing a online search.
Oddly enough, when I did an advanced search under the name of ISAACS,
BIRMINGHAM, RUSSIA, I got an Annie ISAACS(same name as my paternal
grandmother but a different individual), but not my paternal grandparents
-- Solomon and Sarah. When I asked (out of curiousity) for Other Members of
Household, up popped a template (for downloading the PRO Census applet and
although I could see the original document on the screen I couldn't print
it; everything locked up and I had to break out. I hope I don't have to pay
an additional (2nd) fee for the same record.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
