Re: Canadian Census: Olds, Alberta, Canada 1910

In Reply to: Canadian Census: Olds, Alberta, Canada 1910 by Sue Dixon-Fields of 1523

Sue, the 1906 Special Census of the Prairie Provinces, including Alberta, was just released, and is the latest available. Census years in Canada are held on years ending in "1"; ie, 1901, 1911, etc. The 1911 Census will hopefully be released later this year, but that has not yet been confirmed. Nothing later is currently available. The 1906 Census can be searched by location at:

http://www.archives.ca/02/020153_e.html

If you can narrow down your search to a particular area, you can browse through the pages available. The 1901 Census is also searchable in the same format at:

http://www.archives.ca/02/020122_e.html

Another really good source is the Alberta Digital Library of local history books which is on-line at:

http://ahdptest.lib.ucalgary.ca/loc_hist/lh_home.asp

This site is searchable by surname as well by location. Entering "Olds" brings up three history books.

Good luck!
