Thanks to those of you who've again sent us snippets from the Census, and for keeping us informed of your progress (or lack of it). We've heard of various travels and family events, as well as health issues, all of which quite rightly take precedence over transcribing. Dave sent us some rather impressive photos of white-water rafting in the Grand Canyon; others are just plodding through the untidy handwriting, pale images and strange spellings from Victorian Sussex. Such is life!
You'll notice a jump in the statistics in the Progress Report below; piece 1642 is now on line, covering the Lindfield, Cuckfield and Horsted Keynes areas. Repeated thanks to all who contributed in various ways to making the data available for researchers. We were able to tell the FreeCEN bosses recently that there are now just two sections of the Sussex Census that remain untouched. Everything else is at least at the transcription stage, with almost three-quarters of the county on line. Worthing and Brighton are approaching completion. Keep at it!
Best wishes to you all,
