1926 Census: some light shed

Apparently indexing on the 1926 Census of the Prairie Provinces is 86% complete and reviewing 78% done as of 25 September.

Gloria Tubman contacted me with this information following the previous blog post.

I asked Gloria how she knew. She told me she was doing a search on familysearch.org for an Alberta person and received a pop-up inviting her to index the 1926 census. Apparently the indexing wasn't difficult, the online form was user friendly and she completed the 50 lines of a page in about 45 minutes. The handwriting on the two pages she indexed, one for Winnipeg, the other for Edmonton, was mostly very legible.

I've been indexing this census as well. Well-designed and easy to do. Can't wait for it to be released.
