Census Records for St Just in Roseland



Cornwall is really well off when it comes to the availability of census transcriptions. This is mainly due to the work of the Cornwall Online Census Project (COCP) which has set out to transcribe and make freely available all the 19th century Cornwall census records. This is an international team of volunteers of which I am a member. The transcription project is complete and you can find out more about it at COCP.
