Searching the 1901 Canada Census Online

Lorine McGinnis Schulze
http://olivetreegenealogy.com/index.shtml

Searching the new online 1901 census for Canada is tricky - it is images and cannot be searched by surname, only by location.

Here are a few brief pointers to help guide you in your search, based on my own tedious slogging through those records. These pointers should make your own search much more efficient....

See the ongoing Surname Indexing Project for 1901 Census at http://allcensusrecords.com

If you are using the online images at LAC, the 1901 database has 2 Schedules - #1 and #2. #1 is the personal census with names of family members. #2 is a list of addresses that the census taker visited. It is overlooked by researchers but is a time-saving tool!

To begin, you must know a town or at least a township where your ancestor lived. If you know a street or lot and concession number for your ancestor in 1901, go directly to Schedule 2 for each sub- district, and hunt through the few image pages for the street name and number or the lot and concession.

Use the two numbers in the left hand columns to indicate what page and what line your individual is on in Schedule 1. Then go to the correct sub-district in Schedule 1, select the page number(s) you found in Schedule 2 and you have your ancestor.

If you don't know where your ancestor lived, then you should consult the City and Farmer's Directories for that location before starting your search of the census records online.

To search the 1871 and 1901 census records, go to http://olivetreegenealogy.com/can/ont/census.shtml
