Our Northern Neighbors Come Through

The 1911 Canadian census is finally online. As is customary in that frozen and mostly uninhabited land, the census is indexed by geographic location and not by family name. The Library and Archives Canada website adds the following caveat:

Unfortunately, the destruction of the paper records means that there is no recourse when a record is unreadable.
