This is to record my notes on Citations, Sources and Repositories

Ancestry.com citations do not always provide enough information to pinpoint the record (according to the paper records).

Examples:

  • 1911 England Census
  • 1. Registration District, e.g., Sculcoates
  • 2. Registration Sub-District e.g., West Sculcoates
  • 3. Enumeration District e.g., ED 23
  • 4. Schedule e.g., 433

To pinpoint the individual census return, we need:

  • 1911 England Census
  • 1. Registration District, e.g., Sculcoates
  • 2. Registration Sub-District e.g., West Sculcoates
  • 3. Enumeration District e.g., ED 23
  • 4. Schedule Number e.g., 433

or

  • 1911 England Census
  • 1. Registration District, e.g., Medway (47)
  • 2. Registration Sub-District e.g., Gillingham (2)
  • 3. Enumeration District e.g., ED 6
  • 4. Schedule Number e.g., 253

Public Record Office PRO uses a different system:

  • 1. Class: RG14;
  • 2. Piece: 3935;
  • 3. Schedule Number: 253

or (1891 Census) - also uses PRO number - RG12/4224

  • 1. Registration District, e.g., Tynemouth
  • 2. Registration Sub-District e.g., Chirton
  • 3. Enumeration District e.g., 8a
  • 4. Schedule Number e.g., 135

1851 Census

  • 1. Registration District, e.g., Lincolnshire
  • 2. Registration Sub-District e.g., Barrow upon Humber
  • 3. Enumeration District e.g., 8b
  • 4. Schedule Number e.g., 33 (no. of house)

HO107/2118

  • 1. Class: RG12;
  • 2. Piece: 4224;
  • 3. Schedule Number: 253

or 1901 England Census

  • 1. Registration District, e.g., South Shields
  • 2. Registration Sub-District e.g., Jarrow
  • 3. Enumeration District e.g., 23
  • 4. Schedule Number e.g., 142
  • 1. Class: RG13
  • 2. Piece: 4742
  • 3. Schedule Number: 142
  • Class RG13 means 1901 England Census
  • Piece: 4742 means Registration District: South Shields / Registration Sub-District: Jarrow / ED: 23
  • Schedule Number: 142


1. RD , SD , ED 6, Schedule 253, Class: RG14; Piece: 3935.

A citation could look like this:

1911 England Census / Sculcoates / West Sculcoates / ED: 23 / SN: 433

1911 England Census / Medway / Gillingham / ED: 6 / SN: 253

1911 England Census: Registration District: Medway, Registration Sub-District: Gillingham, ED: 6, Schedule Number: 253

The same done using the Public Record Office system would be:

PRO / Class: RG14 / Piece: 3935 / Schedule Number: 253


RG9 denotes 1861 England Census RG10 denotes 1871 England Census RG11 denotes 1881 England Census RG12 denotes 1891 England Census RG13 denotes 1901 England Census RG14 denotes 1911 England Census


The first three get you to the nearest street. The Schedule pinpoints the household.

Ancestry.com usually provides something else: 1911 England Census, East Yorkshire, Reg. District Sculcoates (512), Reg. Sub-District West Sculcoates (8), Enumeration District ED 23, Class: RG14; Piece: 28734


Schedule is not provided. It is necessary to inspect the census form to get this information.
