1916 Canadian Prairie Census available at Library and Archives Canada - only in Ottawa...

John D. Reid of Anglo-Celtic Connections just let me know that microfilms of the 1916 Census of the Canadian Prairies (Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta) are now available for viewing at Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and for interlibrary loan. Drat! I was just there, for goodness sake.

Hoping the Cloverdale Branch of the Surrey Public Library already has an order in.

This census is apparently being digitized under an agreement between LAC and The Generations Network (TGN, aka Ancestry) as was done with the 1891 Canadian census.

What do these commercial agreements mean to those researching their Canadian roots? More from me on this soon. Comments?

For more details, see the Anglo-Celtic Connections:
