I wouldn't say "distinct parts", as the faded census returns are not
confined to any one area of Northumberland in particular.
It's just that a lot of them have faded completely, and others less so.
Perhaps "Ancestry" has been able to use modern technology to make the faded
census returns readable ?
I certainly hope this is the case.
