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.
