How to find your living cousins
12th February 2011
We all start by entering our direct ancestors on the My Ancestors page, but did you know that you can enter any of your relatives who were recorded on the censuses I've selected?
In fact, it's not your direct ancestors who are are most likely to lead to your 'lost cousins' - but their brothers and sisters, especially the ones who had families of their own in 1881.
For the best results enter all the relatives you can find in 1881 - any one of them could be the vital link that enables you to discover a previously unknown branch of your family.
