While We Wait….Instructions to Commissioners and Enumerators, 1921 Census of Canada

Monday, June 24th, 2013

While we, i.e., Canada and the World, wait with great anticipation for Minister Moore to stop messing about and release the much anticipated 1921 Census of Canada, here is a link to the 1921 Enumerator Instruction booklet from the Canadian Century Research Infrastructure project:

http://www.canada.uottawa.ca/ccri/CCRI/Images/1921%20Enumerator%20Instructions%20-%20English.pdf

The booklet gives a complete breakdown of the questions each enumerator had to go through during each enumeration.  It is actually quite interesting reading, but we still want the 1921 Census Mr. Moore, and we want it NOW!

Why the delay??
