Title: Salisbury Parish, West. Co., NB 1921 Census
Post by: jenn270 on Sunday 09 February 20 00:01 GMT (UK)
In trying to read the 1921 census records for Salisbury Parish in Westmorland County I was aghast to find that the first column containing the names has been chopped off when they were digitized. Is there a way to bring this to someone's attention so that they could be redone?

Thank you again, Don; I guess I have my answer, sadly:

"On some pages, part or all of the name column is missing because the left-hand margin of the page had been cut off. Since that information was missing from the microfilm, it is also missing from the digitized images. The originals no longer exist. Those pages are indexed in the database, but the information is incomplete.  For example, the database entry might give age, place of birth, etc., but no name or only a partial name."
