We have finished indexing the 1901 Federal Census for British Columbia!

What we did:-

The project was divided into jobs which are put in packets (containing the forms required for extraction and a cover sheet indicating the section to be done). The jobs were various sizes. The size is determined by the amount of pages in the polling station. The vary from 1 page to 39. We are seeing that it takes roughly one hour of time for each census page (a page has 50 lines). The proofing should take about half of that time. There are 32,653 census pages.

The 1901 census is on 5 reels of film.

The Database will be added to our Website ( it will be limited to searching "surname", "Given Name", "Birth Name", "Occupation", and "Religion" The complete searchable Database will be available at our Resource Centre in Surrey. CDROM's may be available in the future.

The BCGS would like to thank the following Individuals, Societies and Groups who volunteered their time and knowledge. Without their help the BCGS would not have finished the Federal 1901 Census for BC.

Special thanks to Iline Gronlund (1901 Co-ordinator) and Peter Claydon (he designed our 1901 Microsoft Access Database ).
