Repeating history

River Bourgeois census 1891

Richmond County Canada,
District No. 41, Richmond, Sub-District No. 6. Taken By Daniel Sampson on April 6, 1891 with text transcribed and contributed by Jeanne D. Belford. This transcription should be of particular interest to those with Bonin, Boucher, Boudrot, Burke, Cordeau, Dugas, Fougere, Landry, Patis, Sampson, and Thibeau roots. There were 225 families recorded in the 1891 River Bourgeois census.

Unless otherwise noted, all recorded individuals were shown born in Nova Scotia and of the Roman Catholic religion. In this transcription, if the head of a family is of a religion other than Roman Catholic, the remainder of that family is all of the same faith, unless otherwise noted.
