RE: Peace River
- The term district/subdistrict, etc. are used variously depending on the
administrative/operational body, and timeframe.
Since we're talking about the 1906 Census, it's best to stick to the terms
"1906 Census District" and "1906 Census Subdistrict". Absolutely every time
the census is conducted, the districts/subdistricts/enumeration areas, etc.
are reconsidered because they want to balance the workload for those
conducting the census data collection.
Districts are numbered/named in the 1906 Census
Subdistricts are only numbered - but come with legal land descriptions
All three subdistricts of northern Alberta have already been transcribed
At the top of each 1906 Census district page on our site (there are 22),
there is a district-wide geographical description of the scope of the area.
Each subdistrict noted on a given district page also has a geographical
From North to South, the districts of Alberta are:
22 Alberta North
21 Strathcona - only 3 subdistricts are not fully transcribed;
need help with #2 (unless Lottie B is actively working on it),
#13 (unless Obriens are actively working on it),
#37 (unless Ulrich H is actively working on it), &
#45 (unless Carol H is actively working on it)
20 Edmonton - mostly done except for following
#2 (committed by Willa D - but I've not seen any action for a while)
$5 this one is on the way I'm sure
#7 partly done; I think Mertie's distracted by other projects
#19 Committed by Gerald H but haven't heard from him in a long while
#27c & d - I believe AGS volunteers are committed to doing these for
#12 - Comitted by Danny H - but haven't heard from him for a while
Hopefully this is a useful update. Where I say folks are committed,
actively working or MAY be inactively working - there's opportunity for
someone else to jump in. And - before year end, we want to start working on
proofreading/correcting the pages too. Very few of the online
transcriptions have been proofread. Those that HAVE, have a green star
beside the PDF link for the subdistrict.
