Longforgan (Perthshire) census enumerators' drafts 1811/21/31/41 are in the
Dundee City Archives. Transcripts available in ScotlandsPeople Centre
Library (see below).

There are gossipy notes in all of this material to explain how the census was
carried out and who they included, and who they missed out, and why.

The notes in the Longforgan 1841 draft were still useful as an example of the
census process. Volunteers from the Friends of Dundee City Archives have
had the Dundee census indexed, and the district descriptions transcribed, at
