Scottish Census Collection
With the recent release of the 1871 and 1901 Scottish census records, Ancestry.ca now boasts a complete collection of the seven available national Scottish censuses—from 1841 to 1901.
The Reconstructed 1790 Georgia Census
After parts of the 1790 U.S. Federal Census were destroyed by fire, historical groups tried to reconstruct the missing portions. The Reconstructed 1790 Georgia Census was compiled from newspapers, court documents, military records, land documents, and other record sources.
Mexican Border Crossing Collection, 1903–1957
Between 1900 and 1932 the Mexican-born population of the U.S. increased almost fourteen times. The Mexican Border Crossing Collection includes more than 3 million searchable records documenting many of these individuals’ migration. It also includes records of those from European and other origins who came to Mexico before crossing into the U.S.
Coming Soon to Ancestry.ca:
In honor of Memorial Day, several military record collections are scheduled to come out later this month. They include the War of 1812 POW Records; Confederate Army Service Records; U.S. Navy Muster Rolls; and WWII Navy, Marine, Coast Guard casualty records, and more. An updated release of the British Army Pension Records is also scheduled.
