Place of Birth Searches on FreeCEN2
You will have noticed that you can only search for places of birth on FreeCEN2 by County, but not by any lower geographic unit such as an enumeration (census) district, town or village. This is because we have received conflicting feedback on the two methods of providing place of birth searches we have already tried: one was very like the FreeCEN1 search, and another had changes that had been asked for by FreeCEN1 users. Your answers to this questionnaire will help us to understand what solutions are needed.
