Findmypast 1921 Census roadshow

Join us as we take the 1921 Census of England & Wales on a whistle-stop online tour of every corner of the UK and beyond. 

After years spent digitizing the 1921 Census of England & Wales, it's ready for you to unlock the countless stories, secrets, and surprises contained within. To help you make the most of this unique snapshot of our recent history, we're taking it on the road (well, virtually) and bringing it directly to you in your local region.

Between January and May 2022, we'll be delivering over 70 online talks in partnership with family history societies, archives, libraries, and institutions spanning the length and breadth of England & Wales, as well as special events with our friends overseas in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Select the poster below to download a larger version and find out when we're visiting your neck of the woods.

Along with the historical context, tips for effective searching, and using it to trace elusive relatives, you'll learn how the 1921 Census can help you understand your ancestors’ lives better. And your own.

The roadshow kicks off with our census morning at The National Archives on January 8 and runs all the way through to May 14.
