    Ah that's the rub!  Three or four years ago I looked at the films for
the 1901 Canadian census for the area around Morden, Manitoba.  If it hadn't
been for a cousin who lives there I might be still looking.  It turns out
that enumeration district was called "Provencher" .  Where in the name of
Heaven that name came from is beyond me.
    About ten days ago, I was looking at the 1901 census site for the
Manitoba areas of Whitemouth and Beasejour but it was hopeless because I
didn't have a clue as to the enumeration district.
    I hate to be a pessimist, but this census site is said by some to be a
sop thrown out by Ottawa while they attempt to bury forever subsequent
census reports which they are attempting to do despite opposition by all
sorts of people.
