1881 Canadian Census Images Online

This is just a reminder that the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) has placed online a fully searchable and FREE database of the entire 1881 Canadian Census, complete with images.

1) Blacks are most often listed as "African" for their ethnic origin and feel free to use this as a search option;

2) This Web site accepts wild card searches using an asterisk (*) so feel free to use it.

3) Once you get your search result, you can view the page either as a PDF or as a JPEG. I recommend you use a PDF. You won't have to download it to your hard drive (so it won't eat up your hard drive space) and you can enlarge it as much as 6400%! For these old eyes, being able to enlarge the image to about 200% is a godsend. You do NOT have an enlargement option if viewed as a JPEG.

4) If you view it as a JPEG or PDF you can save the image onto your computer or print it out on your home printer.

Good luck in your research.
