If you require 'proof'' of the link of your grandmother with George
Singer, the only way I can think of is to trawl through the un-indexed
1891 census. The 1901 census may be too late to show her as a ladies
maid. This will be on-line from the first working day of year 2002! I
was at the York Family History Fair on Saturday and had a demonstration
of the projected programme for the 1901 census. It looked very good to
my simple mind. I raised the question about the huge rush that will put
a strain on the system when it is first launched, remembering the LDS
Family Search situation. I was assured that they were aware of this
problem and were building in plenty of spare capacity.
I was also assured that the PRO are firmly committed to putting more
census records on-line as soon as possible to relieve the growing
pressure on the record offices.
