Canadian Census Records Webinar

When looking at census records, do you look beyond the first five columns? Most people don't. Once they have the name, age, marital status, relationship to head of household, and place of birth for their ancestor, they stop.
Stopping at the fifth column in the census record doesn't give you all the information you could be getting about your ancestor. Usually, a few more details about your ancestor can be found, when you know where and what to look for.
