I have written two previous blog posts about the release of the 1926 Canadian census that covers the western prairie Provinces.
The information on Library and Archives Canada website about the ’26 census has not changed but we are not completely in the dark as to what is going on.
I am happy to report that someone does know. A comment on my blog indicates that the census has been passed to Family Search and their transcribers are working their magic to get the census in our hands.
Nancy states they are indexing
“Name, land description, relationship to head, sex, marital condition, age, place of birth (province if Canada, or Country) ethnicity and year of immigration. Not being indexed is Father’s place of birth and Mother’s place of birth, year of naturalization, mother tongue, and education.”
This is amazing news and thankfully Nancy took the time to give us an update. Hopefully, we will have access to this soon!
A big Canadian thank you to Nancy and all the indexers at Family Search!
