This site - Lost Cousins - is an unusual concept, but a useful one, and basic membership is free (one of my favourite words LOL). You enter your ancestors from the UK and/or census - and now the census, and the site matches you with other members who have entered the same ancestors - so they are 'cousins'. It is private in that nobody else can see your tree, and nobody can even see your email address.
Of course, it's not just the England & Wales and censuses that they support (which include the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands) - it is also the US Census, the Canadian Census, the Census of Scotland, and the Census of Ireland. They chose these because they are readily available online, and some of them can be accessed for free (there's that word again).
