Ancestry are gradually releasing the 1871 England and Wales Census images
with a *name index* to be available on the internet. They have now
released about five English counties including the London.
This is part of Ancestry's United Kingdom collection of records available at
www.ancestry.co.uk . There is a subscription charge that must be paid
quarterly or annually. I believe that Ancestry are currently offering a 14
day Free Trial Subscription that includes access to these records (but like
most free trials you must cancel the subscription in a timely and correct
manner should you not wish to extend beyond the 14 day free limit).
There are 1,732 persons indexed under the surname LEVY in London. I have
found just Ascher LEVY (who is connected to my wife's family of LEVY
Passover Cake bakers). Unfortunately he was indexed as Archer LEVY so he
took me a little while to find! Even with name indexing you sometimes have
to be creative if you cannot locate your family at the first attempt.
I trust that the moderator of this list will allow this announcement as a
one time mention of a newly released major resource, even though it is a
commercial resource in which I have no interest except as a very excited
