All relationships to head of family.

If persons found in another community in census, both places noted.
Asterisk (*) beside name means person is listed elsewhere with own family.
It will appear that I have made many errors in this list of census. 
However, I have copied the ages and spelling as I found them in the census.  
It is obvious that many people did not tell the truth about their ages to the census taker, 
and many census takers did not know how to spell some names.
However, I would like to know of any errors that I have likely made in this document.
Persons of other surnames living in the same household are listed in that household. 
An index of these names is in the file "Strays" if you are looking for a person or family who may not be under their name alphabetically.  
Also there is a file which lists the Sisters and Priests in the county.
Another helpful tool that I have included in this document is a list of the French male and female names found in the listings. 
I was always not sure if they were male or female and I made this list to help with clarification. 
The list follows this note.
