The census records of West Arichat are an important source of information to those of us researching families in that community because fire destroyed the records of Immaculate Conception Church between the years 1862-1880 leaving an 18 year gap in these family units.

To those interested in the families of West Arichat, I have completed transcribing information from the 1891 census for that community.

We are indebted to Ed GALVIN who loaned me his copy of the 1891 microfilm so that this information could be made available to the group. Thank you Ed! The transcription includes, names of all families, names of members within families, sex, age, marital status, position in family, place of birth if other than Nova Scotia and religion if other than Catholic.

The master copy has been sent to Helena McCAY who will post it on her West Arichat site. Certainly this will take some time to complete. Helena is currently finishing Arthur Bouchard's additions to the River Bourgeois Cemetery. We owe Helena a big thank you for giving the information a permanent home! Merci, Helena!

In the meantime, if any of you would like your own copy and are able to accept a zipped copy in MS Word format, please let me know and I'll send one out to you. I will be working on other census records for this community during the winter months. JB
