Just received this notice from the LAC -
"Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce that Canadians can now access the Census of Lower Canada, 1825 online. The Census of Lower Canada, 1825 is partly nominal and therefore only contains the names of heads of family, their occupation, and the number of residents for each family.
Users can search this new database by the names of heads of family, as well as by geographical information such as district and sub-district names".
They are available in JPG, and PDF, and there are 74,322 records.
The surname, given name(s), occupation, number of residents (classed by age – not name or relationship to head of the household), district name, sub-district name, volume number, page number, microfilm, and reference are listed in the census.
