1891 Canadian census free online at LAC

Helping celebrate Genealogy Gripe Week

No gripe on this one. Kudos to LAC and Ancestry.ca

Now there is free access online to an indexed 1891 Census of Canada through the LAC web site here.

The indexes are linked to digitized images of original census returns which list the name, age, country or province of birth, nationality, religion, and occupation of Canada's residents at the time of the 1891 Census. More detailed information is here.

LAC acknowledges the contribution of Ancestry.ca.
