Finding Street addresses in the England Census Records[edit | edit source]

Street indexes are available for many cities in England for each census year. With the advent of the online indexes and images the street indexes have become less relevant; however, it is another option available to you. Occasionally, situations arise when these easy to use indexes fail to locate the desired ancestor. Incorrect indexing for example will make it impossible to find an ancestor. Addresses can be found in a variety of sources: old letters, directories, civil registration certificates, etc. Some websites now allow you to search by address. Street indexes are available at the Family History Library in both book and microform. You can determine if a street index is available by looking in:
