Aberdeenshire 1851
FreeCEN Project

1851 is complete! All parishes/divisions have been transcribed and are now online and searchable. This is largely due the efforts of previous coordinator Michelle Jeffery and her team of volunteers, who together put the first 158 thousand records online.

With many thanks to all who have contributed time and effort to this milestone.

Welcome to the Aberdeen Free Census Project, which is dedicated to the transcription of the Aberdeenshire census of Scotland. It is part of the UK Free Census Project (aka FreeCEN).

The 1841 and 1861 censuses are also complete and online. They can be searched as part of the FreeCEN database.

We are actively working 1871. Some parishes are available for checking. Previous volunteers for Aberdeenshire would be especially welcome to join us.

For more information, please read the Project FAQs. But if you are interested in becoming a transcriber or checker for any of the Aberdeen parishes, please contact me, Rena Mitchell.

If you are interested in helping with any of the other parishes or counties in Scotland please contact Rena Mitchell (Scotland Coordinator), or the appropriate County Coordinator listed on the Scotland Home Page.
