- The Calgary Public Library said the 1906 Prairie Provinces census on
microfilm in now available on the 4th floor of the downtown Library.
- Thanks Marg-- I would not have thought of looking for them. Now I will have them when someone transcribes them---I swear I won't ever complain about queer interpretations that I have found on other transcriptions.I am doing several pages in Dauphin District Sub Dist 25 around my birth town. Even with being quite familiar with the names around there it is next to impossible soetimes.Am certainly enjoying the work.Donna M Coulter----- Original Message -----From: Marg Randall McCreadyTo: dist-gen@...Sent: 08 February, 2003 5:00 PMSubject: 1906 censusFYI under the City of Calgary, section 26a pages 30 & 31 include The Royal North West Mounted Police.
- Nancy was lucky that her relatives lived in an area with a census taker who
wrote names the transcribers could read (grin)
A Brown family found at Claresholm has the correct surname guessed from
unusual handwriting because the head of household has the same name in the
land grants database. Some of the more difficult names without land grants
were just a guess and arrived in Alberta after the 1901 census. -- Elizabeth
