Now that Ancestry has added the 1891 Canadian census, Steve Morse's One-Step utility for the Canadian census has been extended to include that year. It can be found in the Canada/UK Census section of the One-Step website at http://stevemorse.org/.
Advantages of using the One-Step utility for 1891 Canada rather than going to the Ancestry site directly include:
- can search all years from the same form
- can search on middle initial
- can search on birth year being between two values rather than using plus-or-minus
- can search on age
- can search on religion
- can select district from drop-down list instead of having to type it
- can specify more than 50 hits per page
NOTE from DearMYRTLE: Thanks to Joy for keeping me up to date while away. It's my experience that the Steve Morse One-Step pages provide a better search interface than is usually available through a specific website. While I don't have experience with the 1891 Canadian census, I am sure that Steve's One-Step will once again prove enlightening to researchers.
