|1842 Census Headings Columns 1-51|
HOWEVER not all pre 1851 census are online! Library and Archives Canada has the census of 1842 for Upper Canada (Ontario) online BUT their database only includes the census returns held by Library and Archives Canada.
The Archives of Ontario holds the census returns that still exist for other places; however, they are not digitized, not available online and not included in LAC's database. So you would have to consult Archives of Ontario if your folks don't show up in the online LAC database
When using LAC online searchable 1842 census, be aware that the 1842 Census for Canada West consists of 2 pages:
- Columns 1 to 51 appear on the first page.
- Columns 51 to 89 appear on the second page.
