Main Index: Native/First Peoples/Metis Surnames | Census Extracts


This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Natives, First Peoples and Metis in Eastern Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames carried by Aboriginal (or part Aboriginal) individuals in the 1901 and 1911 census for the eastern provinces of Canada. Note: There are regular updates including external links (e.g. maps, encyclopedia) and added information (e.g. specific tribal affiliations). The companion series Index: Native – First Peoples – Metis [Canadian Marriage Extracts]  – contains many of the same surnames as well as others.


1. To reach the original census records for the district named below, you can click on the External Links at the bottom of the post.

2. You can also click on many of the individual surnames to reach that listing in one of the census records (usually 1901 or 1911).

3. Surnames highlighted in orange also appear in the Marriage Records (although often spelled differently).

  1. Your work is amazing. I am wondering if anyone knows what the « 40 » beside French under Tribal Origin means. Some of us think it could mean French Breed, but we can’t quite understand. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    • Hello Danielle,
      I don’t have an answer for you, but I do know that the people processing the documents used numerical codes when collating the data. There’s some discussion of this on the Canada census site. Here is an excerpt of the discussion followed by a link to the Canada site – “Column headings and interpretation Numeric codes: When employees at the Dominion Bureau of Statistics were compiling the statistical summaries, some of them wrote numbers on the census pages. The numbers relate to the information already recorded, not to additional details about the person enumerated. For example, we have been able to determine that for column 15, Place of birth, the following codes were used on some pages: 1 Canada, 2 United Kingdom, 4 United States, 5 Europe, 7 Asia, etc. There is a guide that explains the codes used in column 28, Occupations (see below). The meaning of numbers written in other columns is unknown.”

      Linnk –
