1931 Canadian
Census

On June 1,
2023, the 1931 Census was launched with digital photos solely. Ninety-two years
in the past, enumerators started to go to their assigned space. They got an inventory of
directions on easy methods to interpret the questions that they had been to ask every
household.

     Not lengthy after the discharge, Library &
Archives Canada bumped into difficulties. For sure, genealogists had been
anxious to seek for their households. Many, like me, have mother and father who had been recorded
throughout that point. Each of my mother and father had been listed on the 1921 census. In 1931, each
had been residing in the identical localities as they’d in 1921. My mom’s household had
not moved, however my father’s had. I knew the place they lived in 1931 from metropolis
directories.

    As a result of the
Library & Archives web site was giving errors in linking to the pictures.
Genealogist Ken McKinlay found a workaround and posted the knowledge on
Fb. I adopted his recommendation and I used to be capable of find my father together with his
household.  I went via every sub-district
in North Gray, Ontario, and I famous that Owen Sound was divided into three
wards – Bay district, which included primarily the east facet of city within the valley
and up on the east hill, doubtless north of 10th Avenue; the West
District and the River District, which included the household and north of tenth
Avenue. I must look extra intently at a map and the census to precisely
to slender which ward to take a look at.

By the
second day, I discovered my mom and her household after Ancestry posted the pictures. It
was useful that I may transfer web page by web page inside a sub-district.

    They had been
on a farm and my great-grandmother was enumerated on the subsequent home. They lived
throughout the lane from one another.

     I observed that the household names close to the place my father
lived had been the identical as after I was a baby.  We lived throughout the street from my grandparents.

    In
addition, I’ve gone via the Markham space, noting which locations had been
included in every sub-district. My curiosity there have been the surnames of households
who got here in 1794 with William Berczy/

    Within the
previous, I by no means sought out the directions for the commissioners and enumerators,
however I did this time.

    Library
& Archives Canada has resolved the preliminary issues.

 

I’ll
proceed to share what I realized, in separate postings,
