1890 Roman Catholic Census of PEI
St. Paul's, Summerside

This information has been extracted from transcriptions that were originally completed by Mr. Lou Daley. A complete set of Mr. Daley's transcriptions can be found at the Public Archives and Record Office, Charlottetown. Portions of his transcripts covering the "Acadian Parishes", as well as the general index, may also be found in the Research Room of the Acadian Museum, Miscouche.

Originals of the census enumerations are apparently held by the Diocese of Charlottetown. Microfilmed copies may also be available, although my understanding is that the microfilms do not include the "Comments" portion of the census.

This census is unique in that it often recorded the maiden name of married women.

Groupings appear to have been made on a per-household basis, similar to the Federal census records. Two or more families, not necessarily related to each other, could be grouped together. Generally, only names and ages were shown. Relationships to the heads of households and other comments were not necessarily provided, although some priests did make additional notes. Each individual was assigned a reference number but these are not included here.

Spelling of names is the same as that used in the original transcripts. This is a partial transcription only, comprising families connected to my personal research. I have attempted to ensure the accuracy of my transcriptions. However, errors are possible and any errors are mine. Please refer to the originals for confirmation and clarification.
