1921 Canadian Census to be released at long last

Ancestry in Canada ( will be releasing the Canadian 1921 census tomorrow (Thursday) at 2pm Eastern Time. The geographic index will only be available to start with, though a full nominal index is on the cards.

It's been a bit of a saga for those waiting for the census to be released online, it having been all dressed up with nowhere to go for several weeks. Last year I discovered three hitherto unknown first cousins of my grandmother had emigrated to Kenora, Ontario, in the early 1900s. One tragically died fighting with the CEF - looking forward to seeing what became of the other two.
