This is where I am placing links for extracts of census records for the Inuit in Canada between 1881 and 1921.

The Inuit people’s traditional lands lie in the Arctic in what is now known as Greenland, Alaska (U.S.A.) and northern Canada (Nunavut, northern Quebec, Labrador). Though they are still known as Eskimos in other countries, those who live in Canada wish to be known as the Inuit people. The Canadian government recognizes them as one of three aboriginal groupings in Canada: First Nations, Inuit and Metis.

Each link below leads to a post with a list of the surnames carried by the Inuit 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.

If you are looking for Inuit marriages, then you may find a few in the  Index of Native, First Peoples and Metis Surnames which includes a selection of extracts from marriage records or as couples listed as parents on baptismal certificates or the marriage records of their offspring.
