JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Scotland's 1911 Census to Be Released in April #general

Jan Meisels Allen

The Registrar General of Scotland announced that on April 5, 2011 the General
Register Office for Scotland will release details on over 4.7 million Scots. The
records will include the name, address,age, occupation, birthplace and marital
status of everyone included in the 1911 census -- and details about their children.
This is the last population census takenbefore World War I, therefore, this will be
the last time mentioned in a Scotland census for those who perished in that War.

A census is taken every 10 years in Great Britain, and released after 100 years.
The 2011 census will be taken on March 27.
