Sources of Genealogical Forms, Gizmos, and Aids!

Recently, I had an email query from a lady looking for census worksheets for our Canadian Census. Though I had seen blank sheets for the American censuses, I had not seen similar for the Canadian Censuses! So, with the help of the Guestbook, I went on a search, and below is a compilation of the answers. Yes, they are available, and from a number of sources! Also, on this page, you will find other assorted forms, gizmos, and printed aids for the genealogist.

Sources of Canadian Census Worksheets!

The following Online Census Forms are on the Wentworth County, Ontario GenWeb Site! Please bookmark this page before you click on the link so you can return, or else use your back button to return here!

"Each Census Transcript form spans two decades and may be printed directly from Netscape Navigator 3 without resizing. Use the File menu item "Printer Setup" to set the Printer to Landscape mode, then "Print" after the image is finished loading. If you are using a Web Browser other than Netscape 3, I suggest saving the file to disk and printing from a Paint Program that allows print preview and correct sizing."

Relationship Chart!

Right here on the Register, we have quite a good Cousin Relationship Chart. You may print it using the print function in your Browser. It is quite useful to calculate those confusing cousin relationships!


Perpetual Calendar!

If you have ever known the exact birthdate of an event, and wished to know what day of the week it happened on? Well, we have the answer for you, a perpetual Calendar, which will print out on screen, a calendar of the month of the event. This device uses Java, and will only work on a Java enabled browser, but, if your browser does not support Java, the link will take you to a wee downloadable DOS program which will do the same thing for you, though not quite so elegantly!


Soundex Program!

Here is a small shareware Windows 3.1/ Win 95 program designed to convert names to their Soundex Codes for quick searches on names!
