I have transcribed the 1861 Census for Lincoln South West, piece number RG9/2354, as part of the FreeCen project. As it will be sometime before the results are available online, I have decided to upload a village by village transcription, complete with a surname index. The surname index is a text file and can be viewed online. The transcription is an Excel spreadsheet, zipped for faster downloading. If you do not have Excel installed, you will need to download the Excel viewer. You may also need to download the zip utility. (Tip – if you find a surname in the index that you want to find in the transcription, highlight the surname column in the spreadsheet and use the “find” facility)
