What can we expect from the 1921 census? by Jenni Phillips

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm | 19/07/2021

Glamorgan Archives events programme


Join genealogist Jenni Phillips as she looks ahead to the release of the 1921 census next year.  An event keenly awaited by genealogists and historians, it will provide a snapshot of our ancestors’ lives in the aftermath of the First World War, at a time of economic uncertainty and industrial unrest.


After looking at the 1921 census in its historic context, this talk will examine the data that’s already available, with a particular focus on Glamorgan, and discuss how this might be reflected in individual household schedules.


The questions posed to our ancestors in this census will also be considered. How and why had questions changed? What clues might newly introduced questions provide us with? How can we plan a research strategy for the census ahead of its release?


Jenni Phillips has been researching family history for around 15 years. She is a committee member of the Cardiff branch of Glamorgan Family History Society and Roath Local History Society, as well as editor of the P*rr*tt Society journal. Jenni has a Postgraduate Certificate in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies from the University of Strathclyde, is a student member of the Register of Qualified Genealogists, and has spoken at local and family history society meetings, as well as THE Genealogy Show.
