Fearing system overload as happened to the Ellis Island, Family Search
and 1901 Census of England and Wales online databases, the National
Archives Canada has quietly placed online the 1901 census of Canada with
no public announcement. You can view it at
(English version) and http://www.archives.ca/02/020122_f.html (French
 Only the images exist; there is no index. You must know the Canadian
equivalent of the U.S. enumeration district to locate a family.
Provinces were divided into districts and sub-districts. You can search
by district name, district number, sub-district name and/or sub-district
number. For larger cities, use the "Detailed Search" facility to add any
known district or sub-district information to reduce the number of hits.
 The database uses the same software--Mr. Sid--as the Ancestry census
images; therefore it is possible to zoom in and out easily and shift
portions of the image shown on the screen. Response time seemed slower
than the Ancestry site.
