Saturday: Times & Transcript (Moncton)

Title: The Anticipation is Growing for the Next Census Release

Snippet: The countdown is on; we’re only months away from peering into the lives of Canadians who lived in 1921. The sixth general census taken in Canada is set for release June 1, 2013, exactly 92 years after enumerators scoured the country to count every individual.

The 1921 Census consisted of five schedules with a total of 565 questions. It is possible that more than Schedule One of the records was preserved, however, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) will wait on the announcement until they take possession of the microfilms and learn exactly what they contain.

. . . To read more, pick up one of the above noted newspapers.
