The 1841 census transcription is being carried out by the county coordinator Grant Forsyth and his team of volunteers. Five of the thirteen parishes, or 47% of the total records, are online. Please note that you will need a Film/Fiche reader to help with 1841.

The 1851 census transcription has been organised by Rena Mitchell and her team of volunteers — with many thanks to all who have contributed. If you have a transcription of Assynt, Clyne, Creich, Dornoch or Durness that you would be willing to share with FreeCEN, please get in touch — we have transcribed all the parishes for which we have images.
