Grandview Database v.14

We have today uploaded a new and updated version of the Grandview Database.  

This version incorporates almost 1,500 new data points since the previous release. Nearly all the new entries are households from the 1911 census, which is now complete. The balance includes an almost complete set of entries for the 1912 City Directory.

I had hoped to be able to say that everyone listed in the 1911 census is now listed in the Database. However, readable handwriting was NOT one of the requirements for census enumerators, and much of the writing, even if well formed, has now faded from sight.There are several hundred households missing for these reasons.  The following link is to a typical page to illustrate these issues.

We hope you find the Database of value, and we encourage and welcome corrections, and additions.
