ARRANGEMENT OF CENSUS
INFORMATION ON THE SITE:
This Provincial census has been arranged to agree with the original
pages of the 1921 census. The Districts and Communities are the same
Districts and Communities as written on the original pages.
ACCURACY OF POSTED MATERIAL:
Since starting to verify the information, we have found that these
pages are old and very difficult to read. They have been read, transcribed,
and then verified by a second person before being set up and posted
on the site. With the state of the handwriting and the condition of
the pages, there most certainly, will still be errors to be found in
the posted material. Each District will be indicated when
a verification has been completed. This verification is only to check
to see that the information has been correctly transcribed, not to
verify if the enumerator mispelled names or entered incorrect dates
of events. It also will not check if communities have been correctly
identifed or grouped incorrectly. Errors of this type will be a future
project. We would especially be interested in hearing from people who
are familiar with the names found in these communities and their spellings
at the time of the census. This way, additional information can be
added to clarify difficult to read entries.
SITE POLICY FOR POSTING MATERIAL ON THE SITE:
Our policy on the site is to post Census information, as nearly as
possible to the entry on the original page, without any editing
or changes. Names in communities will not be alphabetized or rearranged
in any way, so that the order of the houses and families on each street
will not be lost. Names will be posted in the same order and spelled
as originally written.
HOW TO UPDATE AND INCLUDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
To provide an opportunity for additional or corrected information
to be added to the census, we have set up an "Errata Area" on
each page so that this information can be included and made available
The key to our efforts is to provide you, the researcher, with
a historical document that accurately reproduces the original document
without any editing or changes to the original handwritten information.
Please feel free to send your questions, suggestions, substantiated corrections or additional
information to us, using the "Contact" button
at the bottom of any page.
