How to use these Databases

When you first open a database you will be presented with a table showing a selection of the fields in the first 10 records in the database. You then have the opportunity to scroll through these records down and up the table using the NEXT and PREVIOUS tabs. By highlighting and double-clicking any record you will see a pop-up box entitled Detail View which shows additional fields in tabular form.

Sorting - By double-clicking the heading of any field you can sort that field alpha-numerically.

Quick Search - By entering a name in this box and clicking FIND IT! you will select all records where the search string appears in whatever field.  The total number of relevant fields found will be listed in the grey bar at the bottom of the record table.

Wild Cards - You may use wild cards in any search.  In these databases you must use an under-slash _ to match any single character and a percent symbol % to match an arbitrary number of characters (including zero characters).

Advanced Search - More advanced users may wish to use filters.  By clicking the button marked FILTERS you will be offered the ability to enter one or more Filtered Fields and to find records matching the Comparison Value in any or all of those fields.  Do not forget to choose a Comparison Operator for each filtered field and, if you are filtering on more than one field, to select And or Or from the left hand selection box.

Conventions used in transcriptions - The information  presented is initially sorted by ID which is, in principle, the order in which the records appear on the source documents.

In the 1841 Census places of birth are not given. Under the heading Place, Y denotes born in Somerset and N denotes not born in Somerset. A number 1 appears under Households at the start of each new household and the Census No. changes.  The latter is not part of the original documentation. Ages are rounded down to the nearest term of five years if over 14 years.

WARNING - Despite the best efforts of all involved no transcription can be guaranteed to be perfect.  Early handwriting is difficult to read and this is exacerbated by the damage and discolouration of many original documents.   These difficulties together with simple human error in typing can all lead to incorrect transcriptions.  All researchers are strongly advised to use these databases as a guide and to check those entries they are personally interested in for themselves on the microfiche records available at the Somerset Heritage Centre using this database as a guide to their location.
