1906 census query
« on: Friday 12 January 18 09:24 GMT (UK) »
Dear Rootschatters

I'd like to be able to see who was living at Blackfalds, Alberta in 1906, but I'm struggling to search the census as it's not searchable by place.

I don't have a name of a person I'm looking for - I'm interested because my immigrant said on the incoming passenger list that he was heading for Blackfalds, so I'd like to see if I can figure out if he was headed for anyone familiar.

And I'm completely flummoxed by the grid system in use!  Could someone send me a link to the appropriate page in the census please?

thanks!
