Inverness County 1881 Nova Scotia Census County & District Codes

         1881 NOVA SCOTIA CENSUS -- COUNTY & DISTRICT CODES

         The 1881 Nova Scotia Census assigned a number to each County, and
         a letter to each District within the County.  Some Districts were
         divided into Sub-Districts. To facilitate the use of this "Indexed
         Census", each District and Sub-District was assigned a
         four-character mnenomic code, intended to clue the used what the
         full name of the District is:
