David's family story

The 1921 Census - Community Discoveries

After searching for many years and finding dead ends, I finally found my grandfather in the 1921 Census on Findmypast!


An incredibly valuable link to my past that I knew nothing about. I now have traced back to my great-great grandparents (and more). It has been moving, inspiring, soul-searching and a highly productive journey.


This is the third ancestry website I have used and it is the best for accurate local information about relatives. It gives the best value for money. Unbeatable.


David found their family members in the 1921 Census using the Findmypast family tree builder and the handy hints we found for them using our exclusive census records.
