Inverness County 1881 Nova Scotia Census Readme

          1881 Census data for Inverness County, Nova Scotia.

    All this work was done by GEORGE N. McINNIS.  See the file FORWORD.TXT
    to learn more about this project.  Copies of this data have been
    available on microfilm through the LDS Family History Centers, and
    as printed material at various libraries for many years.

    When I (John Smith) discovered that George 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. I
    repackaged it to make it convenient and useful in the Internet
    environment.  This is the result.

    Included is LIST77A.ZIP, a shareware program to view it with.  See
    its help screen about donations.  Some users have converted the data
    to their database program, and utilize the database features to
    extract data of interest. The data is in Census order, but utilities
    are included to sort it in alphabetical order if desired.
