Speaking at the launch of the petition, CIGO Chairman Colm Cochrane said: “We hope with the launch of an online petition calling for the release of the 1926 Census that genealogists and historians will rally to the call; that they will not only support it, but share it, too, on social media, and lobby politicians.”
It seems they have been doing exactly that, but if YOU haven't yet done your bit, you know what to do! You can sign the Petition here.
UPDATE, Noon 16 March: And today, it's the 6,000 signatures milestone that's been passed. Keep going everyone. Sign and share!
