      Carol'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:
      http://www.afhs.ab.ca/data/census/1906/alberta/18/index.html

      If there was a time to learn the Sec/Twp/Rge/Mer system - this is it!
