Victoria Census of 1891

The June issue of the Canadiana Bulletin mentions that images of the municipal 1891 census of Victoria (reel H-1401) are now online at  http://heritage.canadiana.ca/view/oocihm.lac_mikan_104263  "Individuals are listed alphabetically, with notation of street address and occupation as well as the number of persons in the household. Names are given only for the heads of households. Ethnic origin is indicated only for those who were Chinese and Aboriginal. The crews of ships in harbour, and residents of the local orphanage and Indian Reserve are listed separately at the end of the volume."
