The FreeCEN Census Project

FreeCEN's aim is to provide a free-to-view on-line searchable
database of the census returns for the whole country. 

The FreeCEN Project CD's have been freely loaned by the LDS 
to  volunteers  for transcription purposes only.  

Volunteers from all over the world are transcribing  the census 
 into  specially  designed Spreadsheet. 

The Spreadsheet will work on any Windows and Mac Apple PC that has 
that can save a .CSV file Format.

Without the volunteers invaluable support this project would not exist
