You Can Help Index the 1926 Canadian Census

I have been a little focused (alright obsessed) with the potential release of the 1926 Canadian prairie census. After writing some posts about it I have realized that I (and you) can index the census!

It is available as an indexing project at Family Search, I just was on their site and checked.

How do you find it? Log into your Family Search account and select the ‘Indexing‘ tab at the top of the page.Screen Shot 2018-09-08 at 10.21.21 AM.png

Under Project Name select Canada and BINGO you are there!

I know what I will be spending my nights doing. The sooner it is indexed it is likely the sooner we will have access!

I do wonder why this has not been announced by Library and Archives Canada to encourage people to get involved?
