Ancestry 1901 and 1906 Canada Census

Just in time for Canada Day, Ancestry have added indexed versions of the 1901 and 1906 censuses to their Canadian offerings.
As with the 1911 census, which Ancestry added earlier this year, the index entries are linked to images of the enumerator's forms on the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) web site. Unfortunately there is no facility for zooming in on the image, if you want to do so you need to copy the image and paste into an image viewer. I use IrfanView.
We are fortunate to have a free index to the 1901 census completed by volunteers, and more than 90% complete index to 1906, which is only for the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Find these at Automated Genealogy.
