I have a brick wall in Montreal in 1869.
It seems that my gg grandparents were most likely living in Montreal in 1871, but i haven't been able to find them using the search engines.
I'm ready to start reading through the whole census.
But i might as well start in the most likely areas. I have three location indications. I don't know if they all indicate the same general part of Montreal, but at least i would like to read those sections of the census first.
The only thing is, i don't know how to correlate these addresses with the census returns.
Does anyone know how to cross-reference street addresses within the Montreal 1871 Census?
Here are the three location hints i have:
My gg grandparents were married in the Presbyterian church of St Matthew on New Years Eve 1869. The location of that church is described as 787 Wellington Street, corner of Bourgeois near the railway crossing.
I also have a possible sighting in Lovell's Directory of 1870-1871, where the occupants of 183 Centre Street are of great interest to me.
The third location indicator is the 1875 christening of their daughter into the Catholic faith as a toddler. The baptismal register mentions that the little girl was born in 1874 in Ste Anne's, Griffintown, Montreal.
Any suggestions on where i should start my line-by-line read-thru of the 1871 Census?
Grateful for any help
