Ancestry adds Lower Canada censuses for 1825 and 1842

Continuing to benefit from its partnership with FamilySearch, you can now search added 74,323 records from the 1825 census of Lower Canada (Quebec), and 46,467 records from the 1842 census on Ancestry.ca.
These censuses name only the head of household and give his (usually male) occupation along with statistics on the number of people in the household born in certain countries and in various age ranges. The originals were microfilmed by the Public Archives of Canada, forerunner of Library and Archives Canada.
