For those of you who either don't have access to the internet, or don't wish to pay for viewing the census online, (but do still wish to look at original census records), don't forget that you can always buy them on CD. The bonus with this is that you've then got them for whenever you need to look something else up in the future.
Now available for you to own on CD is the Devon 1901 Census, which comes as a set of 12 disks. These contain high quality images of the census books digitised from the microfilm. Please note: Censuses are organised by Registration Districts, which DO NOT necessarily correspond with county boundaries. A set of census records may omit some places within a county, and/or include
places from adjacent counties.
Link to street indexes to browse the areas and streets where your ancestors possibly lived. The CD set covers the whole of Devon as it was in the 1901 Census. Features of the CD set are: the ability to magnify an area to see further detail, and print
the current page. There is also a place name index included, to help you find which CD you should be looking at.
