1841 Scotland Census Now Online

DearREADERS,
In sorting through volumes of email, Ol' Myrt got wind of the 1841 census index and images FINALLY going online. SO I went to:
http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/ and discovered the following:

From:
http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/content/help/index.aspx?1263

We are delighted to announce that, in addition to the 1851, 61, '71, '81, '91 and 1901 census records, the indexes and images for the 1841 Census for Scotland are now available online at http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

There are a small number of districts that are missing or empty and these are listed in the help section.

In addition, St Kilda was missed out of the 1841 census. There is some dubiety as to whether it was forgotten about, or that the Census Regional Manager at the time simply couldn't be bothered traveling out there. However, we have transcribed a page that was later stapled into the volume "Census of Scotland - 1841" and tells the tale of St Kilda being missed out of the 1841 Census."

Happy family tree climbing!
