We have fully computer-searchable transcripts of the complete censuses for the Parishes of Stanhope and Wolsingham, which together cover the whole of Weardale.
The files are in a spreadsheet format searchable by a number of useful fields – surname, forenames, residence, birthplace, occupation, etc – so that searchers can instantaneously locate all entries relating to a particular family or place.
