“1881 Canadian Census Available,” Ensign, Sept. 2002, 79
Searching for ancestors in Canada just got easier. Information concerning 4.3 million people living in Canada in 1881 is now available on CD.
This census data includes the provinces of British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, the Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec.
The National Archives of Canada microfilmed the 1881 census, and the Church purchased a copy of it. Latter-day Saint volunteers in Canada extracted the census into computer databases, and the Church and Family History Department processed the information. The Institute of Canadian Studies at the University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, helped in preparing the data for publication.
The CD package (item no. 50179; U.S. $11.00), includes Resource File Viewer 4.0 and three CDs.
