Here's a short message from Ancestry.co.uk:

Dear subscriber,

In celebration of St Andrew's Day, Ancestry.co.uk is pleased to announce the arrival of a double 1851 & 1861 census special for Scotland. This follows the release earlier this year of our first Scottish census for 1841.

The 1851 & 1861 Scottish censuses contain some fantastic detail on names and characters whose enduring legacies are known across the world, such as:

Sir Thomas Lipton, grocer, and philanthropist who revolutionised the retail grocery trade or the noted author of Kidnapped and Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson, both of whom would have been 1 year old or less at the time of the 1851 census.

Other luminaries from the world of literature as well as science and design include Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the modern day telephone, John Boyd Dunlop, founder of Dunlop tyres and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, renowned Scottish architect and designer and main exponent of Art Noveau in Scotland.

Fully searchable, transcribed indexes, including address and occupational search capability for possibly the first time ever on these censuses. Details about parents, siblings and other relations who lived with them.
