1901 Nova Scotia Census, Halifax County
Smith's Cove Polling District

Below are partial extracts of the 1901 Nova Scotia Census, Smith's Cove Polling District. The families listed either carry the surname MacDonald, or have connections to MacDonald through marriage. I believe that most, if not all, are directly related to my own MacDonald ancestors.

Information is shown in the format: Surname, Given Name(s), Sex, Relationship to Head-of-Household, Marital Status, Date of Birth, Place of Birth, and Racial Origin.

I have added a note at the end of each household listing the religious denomination(s) and occupations of each member.

Please note that not all of the information available in the original census documents has been listed here. More data may be obtained by reviewing the originals. I have made all attempts to ensure the accuracy of my transcriptions but errors may still be possible. Please check the originals for confirmation.
