Newfoundland & Labrador 1901 census reports

Not long ago I found a listing on the Internet Archive website (under texts) for the Census of Newfoundland and Labrador for 1901. When I first looked at the files I was disappointed not to find the mother lode of my ancestors names – as they appeared at the beginning of the 20th century.

What I found were charts – two whole books of them. Yes, I mean that dread word – Statistics. Each District was broken down by community, and in each community the number of houses, churches, businesses, boats, traps, nets, and heads of cabbage had been counted. The resulting numbers give a good idea of what these towns looked like and what our ancestors were doing in 1901.

 

My transcriptions:

Electoral District of Harbor Main.
Table II. Section A. – Buildings

Table II. Section A. – Fisheries

Table II. Section B. – Ships & Boats; Occupied Land

Table II. Section C. – Produce of Land, Live Stock – Coming Soon
