1906 Transcriptions


The 1906 Census was only collected in the prairies of Canada – for purposes of documenting the great volume of new immigrants who settleed there by that time. The Alberta Family Histories Society has established a centralized online 1906 Census Transcription Centre where the 800,000 records can be searched. Images of the original records may be read online at the National Archives of Canada website – as linked from the AFHS pages.

The MHSA has a summary set of links to the transcriptions pertinent to areas that were settled at that time (Mennonite communities). MHSA volunteers are contributing to this transcription work.

Here are the data transcriptions from the 1906 census for Mennonite communities in Canada’s Prairies.The census images for Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta can be found online at the National Archives website.

The images from the 1906 Census for the Canadian Prairies is now publicly available at the National Archives Website. To use effectively, you’ll need to consult the map resources first to be sure you are pursuing the right geography – since the search tool only works on geographic (not name) fields.
