beta 1911 census of England and Wales blog:
"Due to the positive feedback from the beta period so far, and to allow people to search the extra 22 counties we’ve added, we have extended the beta period into the Christmas holidays.

Please keep an eye on this blog for updates on the shutdown date.

There will not be live Customer Suppport over Christmas, Boxing Day and the weekend directly after (27th/28th) but we will be picking up enquiries again on the 29th.

A few people have received invite emails, deleted them and not been able to get back into the site. Please remember to either bookmark the beta site in your browser, or to use the link on the right of this blog, as you cannot access it from the main site.

Finally, please keep the feedback coming, thank you *ever* so much for your time and help so far, and our very best wishes for a happy Christmas and an excellent New Year from the entire team here at and brightsolid."

nFS: New Family Search and Evidence Hierarchy in Combining Names - Family Genealogy and History Internet Education Directory | Google Groups:

"It is my own personal opinion, that genealogy
and family history will NEVER become the
Higher Education discipline that it ought to be,
(and LDS Temple Work become part of the
majority interest among the 'Mormon' community,
as a primary interest among the whole church),
unless and until the largest genealogical database
in the world becomes immune to constant
and significant truthful criticism, and that from
the very elite in the field that uses it the most.
In other words, the compiled database must NOT
be less reliable than a bank statement, a title search,
or an originating official archival depository source,
irrespective of the good intentions of the compilers. . . . . . .

Respectfully yours,
