Title: Wrangling the 1921 Census from the Federal Government

Snippet: There’s a buzz in the Canadian genealogy community this week. The 1921 Canada Census has been digitized and is ready to be placed into the hands of Canadians around the world as of June 12th. But you won’t find it on the Internet.

Elizabeth Lapointe at Genealogy Canada alerted genealogists and historians to this unpleasant news in her post “Breaking News: 1921 Census of Canada”.
