Antigonish County 1891 Nova Scotia Census Project Readme


          1891 Census data for Antigonish County, Nova Scotia.

All this work was done by GEORGE N. McINNIS.  See the file forward.txt
to learn more about him and this project.  Copies of this data are
available on microfilm through the LDS Family History Centers.  When I
found that he still had the electronic versions, and they had not been
made available to the world, I pestered him till He gave me a backup
copy to play with.  This is the result.

I must appologize to him in that he had the data all layed out in by
district, in nice report files.  I ran into problems in that part of the
reports were missing in the backups, and it was just easier to create
one big report.  I included list77a.zip, a shareware program to view it
with.  See its help screen about donations.

The data is in Census order, but utilities are included to sort it
in alphabetical order if desired.  Except for the sort program, bat
files, and this readme, the work was done completely by George.  I just
packaged it.  You can contact George through me, or by mail.  His
