June 26 – 9:00 AM – Stream A – What You Don’t Know about the Canadian Census (Ontario Focus)

Summary 

Use the Census like a Pro. Come discover all the little details you never knew about the Canadian censuses 

Outline:  

The census is one of the first records most genealogists discover, but we don’t always know what we don’t know. Starting with the 1851/2 census, this session will cover all the little details you might have missed: dates of enumeration, enumerators’ instructions, common enumerators’ practices, explicit and implicit information, quirks of each census year, non-population schedules, urban versus rural schedules, and how to determine if your ancestor’s district is missing.
