THE records of the 1911 Guernsey census have gone online today.

It is the first time the records have been made available in 100 years.

More than 90,000 people in Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney and Sark were recorded on the census on Sunday 2 April 1911.

The records contain details about many islanders' ancestors, including William Carey who was the Bailiff in 1911 and the ancestor of former Bailiff Sir de Vic Carey, who occupied the role between 1999 and 2005.

Seigneur of Sark William Frederick Collings is also recorded on the census.

The 1911 British census is the most detailed since UK records began.

It recorded those aboard navy and merchant vessels at sea and in foreign ports, as well as details of army personnel and their families in military establishments overseas.

Public demand has meant the records have been released three years ahead of schedule.

The records may be viewed at www.1911census.co.uk.
