Was your grandma a female pioneer like Dorothy Levitt, the first female racing driver? Was your grandpa one of the last mole catchers?

Today, the most extensive British census ever available online will reveal where your grandparents were, who they were with and what they were doing in the summer of 1921.

Jen Baldwin from Findmypast will walk us through some fascinating information, history, and stories found in the 1921 census of England and Wales!
