Transcriber's Notes:  These records were taken from the National Archives of Canada on 26 April 2000. The photocopies were taken from microfilm reel number T6309. They are provided for research purposes only.  Many of the spellings on the list will appear as typos; however, they are not. I copied as faithfully as possible the spelling on the original. Where I could not be 99.44 percent sure, I left a blank.

A number of the ages given are open to question, especially when if right the ladies would have had their first child at around 10 or 11 years of age.

I left a lot of blanks instead of filling them in in all cases. For instance when it was shown that the oldest child and its parents were born in NS, I didn’t bother to fill in the remainder of the blanks. I did the same for religion. Once it was shown that the person was RC, C Presb, Meth or Bapt I normally didn’t insert the religion until there was a change. This was not done in all cases–I’ve stopped claiming to be perfect.
