Census of Canada, 1901

The National Archives: Archivia Net: 1901 Census photographs are searchable by geographic location (name of village, city, town, district and so on. Geography is the key to using the National Archives census online database or census reels more efficiently. What current Province of Saskatchewan Placenames existed in 1901 when it was part of the Northwest Territories? What name changes have occurred? How are place names spelled on the 1901 census? Which 1901 census placenames are RE-named at a totally different current location from the location used in 1901? What current day placenames exist near 1901 census placenames which do not exist anymore? The 1901 Census placenames are highlighted to indicate microfilm reel numbers. If you can't find the name of your city or village in the Census records, check here to see if your city or village existed in 1901 - or if it had a different name. If a placename is listed under another name, for instance the census area covers more than one placename yet only one is listed in the census index, then check here for the placename to enter. For maps of boundary changes.
