    1931 Canadian census is on Ancestry.com free.
    Ancestry didn’t do much of a job with their AI re the census.Familysearch is also doing the census but it isn’t on line yet. I suspect they will do a better job than Ancestry. It is also on Canadian government site.

    Diane: Again thank you for even more information.
    I have tried several times to find Abraham Jones at 1383 Parthenais St using the 1921 census with no luck. As well as trying to find her sister in Erie Pa. without luck.I did find a WinnifredJones-Anderson/Carrier marriage and her parents match.As for Jack Jones Staford (there is only the one F) I have several immigration entries for him as a pilot for Air Canada and KLM after WWII as well as some marriage info. i do have a newspaper article about the plane crash in Alaska (due to bad fuel).I will have to do some more searching. Your 1921 census data on Jack is correct. I will have to see if I can get a copy of it.Again thank you, you have only perked my interest more.And wondering how you got the 1921 info on Jones and I did not.bill2004@mac.com
