This is where I place links for extracts of census records for the Canadian Iroquois who belong to the Iroquois Confederacy. Today, these First Nations are primarily found in their traditional territories in Ontario and Quebec although I have found individuals living in other census districts and these will also be listed below.

Please note that the records were created by settlers so they followed settler naming practices and applied new location names.

I wish to acknowledge (as a settler) that these were traditional territories

that were already inhabited and named by indigenous peoples.

The Iroquois Confederacy includes the five traditional peoples of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy (Cayuga, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga and Seneca) as well as the Tuscarora. This list does not include other Algonquian-speaking First Nations such as the Huron.

Each link below leads to a post with a list of the surnames carried by one or more Iroquois nations in a single given subdistrict at one point in time. Where technically possible, I’ve linked to each surname individually. Where I couldn’t do that I’ve made a link to the subdistrict. In all cases I’ve linked only to records that you can access free of charge.

Notes of caution. Some of these census districts (particularly in Ontario) describe reserves that are shared between Iroquoian and non-Iroquoian First Nations.  Secondly, the same area (e.g. Sault-St-Louis) can sometimes be  found in different census districts in different years so be sure to scan down the list for that province. Finally, I have found small numbers of Iroquois in other areas of Canada (such as the far West) and these are not included on this list.

If you are looking for Iroquois marriages, then you’ll also want to consult the Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames [Marriage Extracts] which includes a selection of Iroquois couples from marriage records or baptismal certificates or the marriage records of their offspring.

If you’re looking for ALL First Nations census records, then click on Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts.

This winter I’ll continue adding to the Iroquois marriages and will also add more direct links to original online documents, databases and/or census districts records.
