Folketellingen for Canada 1921

Det er bestandig vanskeligere å finne slekt i Canada enn i USA, da kildetilfanget er mindre. Men jeg leste nå nyhetene på Ancestry.coms, og nå legges folketellingen 1921 for Canada ut. Canada har en sperrefrist på 92 år på dette materialet.  De holder på med å registrere denne enda, og følgende opplysning finnes på Ancestry sin hjemmeside:
"For the 1921 census, each province was divided into census districts. These districts were divided into sub-districts. Districts were roughly equivalent to electoral districts, cities, and counties. Sub-districts were typically towns, townships, and city wards.
We’re working on an index for the 1921 census that will let you search by name and other details. In the meantime, you can browse the census by province, district, and sub-district to zero in on your ancestor."

Denne folketellinga ble tatt opp 1. juni 1921. 
Her er en oversikt over de spørsmålene som ble stilt i forbindelse med opptaket av folketellingen 1921:
