2323RE: 1901 Canada Census Index
- Feb 1, 2004Congratulations, Ian. This is a significant achievement. I'm going to
check my own shelf to see which volumes I'm missing and get an order in for
the needed ones.

> For information:
> The Edmonton Branch of the Alberta Genealogical Society has COMPLETED a
> seven-and-a-half year project indexing the 1901 Canada Census for the
> whole area which became the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan (in
> 1905). 146,000 names have been extracted and tabulated. The final
> printed volume is at the printer and will be ready to ship before the
> end of February.
> The five volumes include:
> District 202 - Alberta (Edmonton, Strathcona, Calgary , Lethbridge etc.)
> District 203 - Assiniboia East (SE corner of Saskatchewan)
> District 204 - Assiniboia West (Medicine Hat to Regina)
> District 205 - (Saskatoon, Prince Alberta and Central Saskatchewan)
> District 206 (part) - Unorganized Territory of Athabasca (Grande
> Prairie, Fort Chipewyan, Isle-a-la-Crosse, Pelican Narrows)
> The District 202 index is available on the Edmonton Branch website.
> We acknowledge that a more recent index/finding aid is being developed
> on Internet through automatedgenealogy.com. Their work overlaps and
> duplicates some of the effort done by our dedicated volunteers.
> In some respects, the purpose and intent of the AFHS Canadian
> Genealogical Projects Registry to avoid such duplication has not been
> honoured. However the users will now have two sources available and the
> AGS index has had the benefit of a team effort to decipher and proof
> difficult names and to cross check them against alternative sources. We
> have also included the country/province of birth to assist searchers
> make the connection to the original records.
