New Canadian and UK Records at MyHeritage

Now back from vacation, I’ve some catching up to do, starting with MyHeritage.

1931 Census of Canada

As with the US 1950 census, MyHeritage wasn’t the first with a name indexed version, but isn’t that far behind and is ahead of Library and Archives Canada.
You can search the MyHeritage version by name, place and year of birth, census place, and optionally add the same information for other family members in the household, and gender. There are links to the original images at LAC. Several fields remain to be digitized.
A quick test on the surname Northwood found all the people I expected.
