Follow Friday: LostCousins

This site - Lost Cousins - is an unusual concept, but a useful one, and basic membership is free (one of my favourite words LOL).  You enter your ancestors from the UK 1841 and/or 1881 census - and now the 1911 census, and the site matches you with other members who have entered the same ancestors - so they are 'cousins'.  It is private in that nobody else can see your tree, and nobody can even see your email address.

Of course, it's not just the England & Wales 1841 and 1881 censuses that they support (which include the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands) - it is also the 1880 US Census, the 1881 Canadian Census, the 1881 Census of Scotland, and the 1911 Census of Ireland. They chose these because they are readily available online, and some of them can be accessed for free (there's that word again).
