A simple calculator uses only the prices of consumer purchases to do this whereas a complete purchasing power calculator, such as found in this website, uses various prices, wages, output, etc., depending on the context. For more information on this issue, consult Five Ways to Compute the Relative Value of a UK Pound Amount, 1830 to Present where you will also find further discussion of this issue. The answers you get from this calculator will be the same as those from the Relative Value calculator. That is, you will get the "simple" purchasing power calculator result and other choices that may be better depending on the context. To determine the value of an amount of money in a particular ("original") year compared to another ("desired") year, enter the values in the appropriate places below.

Medway Ancestors is Medway Council's project to publish images of the original parish registers in its custody on the Medway Archives web site CityArk. The registers are held on deposit from the local parish churches and cover the Rochester Archdeaconry area, extending from Dartford and Gravesend in the west to Rainham in the east and focusing on the Medway Towns. The project was made possible by a grant of £49,500.00 by the Heritage Lottery Fund under the Your Heritage scheme. Below you will find links to the parish register images, arranged by parish in alphabetical order. How to use Medway Ancestors. Click the relevant parish link from the list of parishes below.

1841 - 1911 census records

Some common errors that can be found in census returns are as follows: Errors in recording census data As illiteracy was quite high in the 19th century, many people may have asked their friends, neighbours or even the enumerators to help fill out the forms. In institutions or on vessels it was the person in charge of the prison or ship who completed the details on behalf of everyone in the institution or on the ship. This led to many errors in note taking and in recording the final information. Typical mistakes were made when spelling peoples’ names, or noting their occupations, or even when recording their ages. Age discrepancies Whilst enumerators and the officials at institutions made mistakes when recording information, individuals who completed the forms themselves also made some errors. Name changing.
