1881 Canada Census Images online!
- Hello everyone
Well, summer is halfway over for most of us.... but it's
been beautiful! Some of my grandchildren are visiting for
August so it's been fun for me (although exhausting!) to
see them more than usual.
Here is the latest genealogy news.
*1881 Canada Census IMAGES now online *
Library & Archives Canada has just put the images for the
1881 Canada Census online. The census is fully searchable
and you can view the page for any ancestor name you are

I found the online images impossible to read and could not

Great Great Grandpa Daniel loved his Dandelion Wine and was
known to imbibe a bit too much on occasion.
