How to get the best from the 1911 census

John Hanson, FGS (Society of Genealogists Enterprises Ltd, 2009), A5, 111pp

Although this useful and informative book was written when the only source of the 1911 census returns was via The National Archives site, there is much to help you understand the information obtained in 1911 that doesn't appear in earlier returns. This book is copiously illustrated with computer screen shots and records (that a picture is worth a thousand words is so true in this book) and problems that you may encounter in searching and understanding a particular image. Everthing is explained clearly and easily by the author, who is a very experienced researcher, writer and lecturer. Recommended.
