Library and Archives Canada Updates and Expands its Researching Early Census Records Guide

The following announcement was written by Library and Archives Canada:

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the launch of an expanded version of one of our most popular research guides: Finding Aid 300: Other census and related documents (1640 to 1945).

This tool is a comprehensive guide to early census and related records found at LAC, with references mainly dating from 1640 to the 1800s. There are also some records from the 1900s, including Newfoundland and Labrador from 1921 to 1945.

New to this version of Finding Aid 300 are links to digitized images of most of the documents. Researchers can access numerous digitized records relating to Acadia, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia.

We also invite you to visit our updated Censuses page, which includes links to our databases of census returns (1825 to 1921) and other resources.

Thank you, thank you for the LAC update. I found my ggg grandparents, James and Lydia Brown, on the 1798 census. Name, address, profession and religion. Also fascinated to see they were living next door to his employer who became a life-long friend even after he left his employ.
Never dreamed I would be looking at a 1798 census when I published a biography of this couple in 1967. Still pouring over it!!
