         1891 NOVA SCOTIA CENSUS - DISTRICT CODES - ANTIGONISH COUNTY

         The 1891 Nova Scotia Census assigned a number to each County, and

         this "Indexed Census", each District was assigned a four-character
         mnenomic code, intended to clue the user what the name of the
         district is:
