Dear Jewish Genners:

The Canadian 1911 Census which has been the focus of a long legislative
battle is now on-line and accessible! It may be viewed at:


Legislation enacted only a few weeks ago -S-18 --released the 1911 census
and the censuses that follow through 2001 (each census will be released 92
years after it was taken).

A great accomplishment in a few weeks, so kudos to Ian E. Wilson, Librarian
and Archivist of Canada, and the staff at Library and Archives Canada for
their hard work in putting these valuable records online sooner than was

For those with Canadian ancestry, enjoy the census!!
