Nairnshire 1841–1871
FreeCEN Project

Welcome to the Nairnshire Free Census Project. This project is dedicated to the transcription of the Nairnshire census of Scotland as part of the UK Free Census Project (aka FreeCEN).

Nairnshire 1841 – 1871 are all complete and online — thanks to the work of Peter Thomson, then Michelle Jeffery and the team of volunteers.

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.
