Question #1: Most individual are not linked together in family units in this collection. On the records details page you find some individuals linked as family units, but it is seldom the entire family. Is there a way to find family members?
Answer #1: There are two ways to work around this problem: One way to group individuals together in their proper family units is to search for the name of one member of the family. Refine your search by using only the surname in the Last Names box, and by copying the Sub-District, District, Province in the Residence Place search box. Then search again. All individuals with that surname residing at that census Residence Place will be displayed. You will have to look at the indexed information of each individual listed to find the page and line number on which this name was recorded on the original census record. Families will be grouped sequentially on the same page or neighboring pages. This is not ideal, but it is a workaround until the family members are properly linked together in this collection.
The other way is to go to the Canada Archives and Libraries wiki for current websites to search for a family member.
