Welcome to the Kinross-shire Free Census Project. This project is dedicated to transcribing the 19th century census returns for the Kinross-shire parishes, and making these transcriptions freely available online as part of the UK Free Census Project (FreeCEN).

1841 — online

The 1841 Census for Kinross-shire is already online. Our thanks go to former County Coordinator, Gillian Arnot-Smith, and her team of volunteers.

1851 — underway

Work has now resumed on the 1851 Census for Kinross-shire. With thanks to County Coordinator, David Robertson, and his team.

We are not recruiting Transcribers, but if you have some FreeCEN experience and would like to volunteer as a Checker, or have any questions, please contact Rena Mitchell (Scotland Coordinator). Previous volunteers for Kinross-shire would be very welcome!
