                                 GEORGE N. McINNIS


         The 1891 Nova Scotia Census assigned a number to each County, and
         a letter to each District within the County.  The "County Numbers"
         are as follows:

         Note that these numbers are DIFFERENT than was used in 1881.

         When there are similar files for different counties, the are
         differentiated by using the above "alpha code" as the first digit
         of the FILENAME, and the last two digits of the census year as the
         second and third digits.  For example, every County has its own
         list of Enumeration Districts, and they differ each census decade.
