MB | Cameron d-4 | Metis, Mixed-heritage: English French Scottish (1901)

Main Index: Native – First Peoples – Metis [Canadian Census Extracts]

This is part of a larger project to locate surnames carried by Inuit, First Nations, Metis and mixed-heritage people from across Canada. In this series of posts, I list surnames transcribed from census documents ranging primarily from 1881 to 1921. With some exception, you can usually click on each surname to reach the records for just that surname. Alternatively you can scroll down to External Links for an overall main link. Orange-coloured surnames also appear in the companion series – Native – First Peoples – Metis  [Canadian Marriage Extracts], although the names may be spelled differently.
