One Step Search Engine for 1891 Canadian Census

Now that ancestry has added the 1891 Canadian census, the One-Step utility for the Canadian census has been extended to include that year. It can be found in the Canada/UK Census section of the One-Step website

Advantages of using the One-Step utility for 1891 Canada rather than going to the ancestry site directly include:

- can search all years from the same form

- can search on middle initial

- can search on birth year being between two values rather than using plus-or-minus

- can search on age

- can search on religion

- can select district from drop-down list instead of having to type it

- can specify more than 50 hits per page
