1160Re: 1906 Census Blairmore help needed
- Feb 3, 2003Carol's correct. But, I'm hoping that as transcriptions go onto the
AFHS website, "Blairmore" will show up as a post office location (It's
not expressly listed by National Archives in any of their pages) - and
then our own search engine at
<http://www.afhs.ab.ca/data/census/1906/index.html> will be able to help.
In the meantime, know that Blairmore is in SW Alberta, and so likely in
District #18 <http://www.afhs.ab.ca/data/census/1906/alberta/18/index.html>.
then, you'll need to consult a map (you can try some of the ones listed
at: http://www.archives.ca/02/02015304/0201530401_e.html#Alberta) to
determine what the Sec/Twp/Rge/Mer coordinates are - I'm betting that
Sub-Distict 6 might be the right one for you.
This will let you choose the correct image pages from the comprehensive
list compiled at:
If there was a time to learn the Sec/Twp/Rge/Mer system - this is it!
