English census records are a fundamental source for English research, because it is the only source that clearly identifies all the members of a family unit in one records and puts them all together in the one place at one time. 

In this detailed guide, family historian Paul Milner explains how and why census records were created in 1801, expanding to an every-name format in 1841, and following every 10 years since. The book explains what the records look like, how they have evolved, and why they are one of the few records that place individuals into families. By following a case study family through the different census years, Milner expands upon census records to show how to put the family physically on the ground, using maps.

Census research methods have changed drastically in the last few years, as nationwide indexes have come online, other with attached images. This book also shows how to effectively use these different online databases and indexes.
