Hi Beth

Until the cenus gets a Surname index I think that the information for a
lookup is much the same as for a current 1891 lookup. I.E. a name and an
address or at least a road/street/&c and district. If there is no exact
house number it is no easier to read the pdf images than it is a fiche apart
from the the zoom facility.

Regards from a sore-eyed and pop-eyed, yet still 1891 ancestorless,

reasonably ask for in the way of look-ups? If one does not know where in
London one's ancestor lived, is there any way of finding them?

for look-ups that are beyond the abilities of the resource to answer, so
perhaps you can prevent this by giving us some clear guide-lines as to what
is possible.
