1921 Census; anyone excited (or unexcited) ?
« on: Thursday 14 March 19 12:53 GMT (UK) »
So - FindMyPast are going to have it first, presumably at a premium, just like 1911, and then 1939.

Anyone got brick walls they're hoping 1921 data will solve?

Given the existence of the 1939, I'm "not bovvered" about 1921 at all, but what's everybody think?

For anyone having difficulty with their ancestors movements it could be a big help.

Not everyone lived in the same place in 1911 and 1939, so 1921 could also be different. Change of names, more children, different jobs. There are lots of possibilities !

I, for one can`t wait, it will be the first time my parents appear, aged 4 and 5. I know where the 4 year old will be and with whom. The 5 year old not quite sure.

Census is always useful to pick up children who may have sadly been born and died young.  It always throws up new lines, leads and information even if you think you have the whole story from BMD. I think I could WRITE my 1921 census lines now - but I know there will be surprises.
1921 also had some "new" questions regarding marriage, benefits and languages.
NEILSON - Erskine/Bishopton, Renfrewshire and Glasgow
BROWN - Hamilton, Lanarkshire
CAIRNS - Hamilton, Lanarkshire
FINDLAY - Kirriemuir area, Forfarshire/Angus
PORTER - Tobermore, Derry, Ireland

It may be my last ditch chance to pin down the birth (and therefore parents) of my OH's Great Grandfather.
The 1921 asks for age in years and months. Providing that is completed it 'may' help to confirm which John Wilson who was born in the correct time frame and area was the one I need.

He died in 1923, so the 1939 (in this case) was no help. I have definite records for him from 1898 when he married and everything checks out.

After years of looking at every John Wilson who was born in the right area at the right time, with a Dad called William, I 'think' I know which one may be him and indeed have a copy birth cert that has sat in the 'possible but unconfirmed as not enough evidence to be certain' box for years now. It feels right, but I can't document feelings, so he remains unsolved.

At least while we wait for the census to be released  I have the luxury of optimism that 'this' could be the answer - I'll enjoy it while I can :-)

I'm hoping it might eventually give me more information about an ancestor who came over from Ireland, was parsimonious with information, and variable in age in the couple of censuses I have him in, and then died somewhere early 1920s, after re-marrying, or so I've been told! But I'm not holding my breath.....(gasp)
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)
