Need help with part of 1921 Cdn census
« on: Saturday 10 August 13 00:52 BST (UK) »
Can anyone read what it says between the words "England"  and "Canada" please.  It is the year of arrival into Canada.  It's for my gr gr grandmother who was born c1827 and was in Canada by 1860.

Thanks,
Karen

It doesn't look like figures to me.

I can see Maj/g...mn or wn

Would it be her surname?  Or town she was from?

Here is a bit more of it, so you can see that the enumerator was capable of writing clear numbers.   ::)

I'm not sure, her last name is Bowman (Sophia Bowman).  She changes her mind all through the census years as to where she is born, sometimes Canada, sometimes England.

I wonder if anyone can change it positive to negative if that might help read it?  For the life of me I can't figure out how to do that  :-[

How about 'N given' - 'not given' or 'none given'

It could mean she went from England, arrived in NY then went on to Canada. Not sure what the faint print after NY says. You can try and look up passenger lists to NY in 1861, maybe? ::)

Thanks everyone!

I'm starting to think that it is "not given"  :(
