Ancestor's in western Canada 1916? FREE census search

As we all know the census is one of our most valued searches!! There were Special Censuses taken in Manitoba, Sask, and Alberta in 1906 and 1916. These have been available, indexed, on Ancestry for some time, but LAC has just now released a free searchable version (courtesy of Ancestry). One word of advice ... my grandparents were in Sask. in previous censuses but are absent in 1916 - both versions - so don't believe everything you find, or don't find!!

Still, it's hard to beat FREE?? Have a go at

PS. I LOVE hearing from you all - good, bad, or ugly!!
