1916 Canadain Census Online

1916 Census of Western Canada Now Available Online (from Legacy News, 20 Jan 2009)

If you are a Canadian researcher, today it's your turn to get excited. The 1916 census of Western Canada is now available online for free searching and browsing.

In August 2008 the census was released on microfilm and has been available for searching on location at Library and Archives Canada. We wrote about this here. Now, thanks to the FamilySearchIndexing efforts, the census, which includes Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, is now searchable in FamilySearch's pilot Research Search database.

To search the census, for to http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch, then select Canada in the Select a Region drop-down list. Happy searching!
