1906 Census News
- Congratulations to Lois Sparling,
AFHS Member and Calgary lawyer who had a major hand in having the
federal government respond to releasing the 1906 Census to the public.
She with 11 others pursued a legal action. Others in Calgary (especially
Bob Westbury & Doug Stobbs) lobbied. All are proud and happy today!

National Archives Website. To use effectively, you'll need to consult
the map resources
first to be sure you are pursuing the right geography. (See districts
