Online publishing

Online publishing of the 1911 Census for England and Wales - Home Page

Over the past five years The National Archives has embarked on an ambitious and successful programme to digitise over 90 per cent of the most popular documents in its largely paper-based collection. It is aiming to digitise over 100 million pages by 2012. These range from Domesday Book (now available digitally at, through to the censuses, prisoner of war records, ancient petitions, war service and medal records. Working with partners in the private sector, The National Archives has made records such as lists of emigrating passengers and the 1841 -1891 censuses available for research, through similar partnerships. The National Archives has also launched a digitisation-on-demand programme which makes the majority of its collection accessible to researchers from anywhere across the globe.
