Record Description

This collection will include records for the year 1921.

These records include an index and images of the census housed at the Provincial Archives of Newfoundland and Labrador. Some 1911 census books were used to record the 1921 census, so some books are labeled "1911" but are for 1921. For the 1921, census previous Electoral Districts were divided into smaller districts. However, some census forms had to be redone, which meant that the census was not complete until 1922.
