Transcription of the 1921 Census

People in Nova Scotia are starting to take matters in their own hands, and they are transcribing parts of the census themselves.

For example, Dwayne Meisner has “transcribed the 1921 census for 13 Mile House in Halifax County. The census also includes Beaver Bank, Kinsack, Fall River, Windsor Junction, Lower Sackville, Middle Sackville, Upper Sackville, Lakeview.

Diane Tibert has transcribed parts of the Liscomb census, also in Nova Scotia, at her blog Roots to the Past at  

If you have done the same thing, or have done it yourself, and would like to put the fact out to everyone,  send the particular to me, and I will put it on this blog.
