Population Census

John MacDonald, our Heritage Warden, has collated information that is now available about the population census for the years 1841, 1851, 1861,1871,1881, 1891 and 1901. This has required a lot of time transcribing the images of the original handwritten census documents which are now available in searchable electronic format. Thank you John!
