Just curious!

[[Category:French Immigrants to New France]] is only for people who were born in France and then immigrated to New France (only during the time when it was called New France).

[[Category:Quebecois Project]] has been used by many project members for all profiles covered by the project. I've been trying to think of a better way of categorising the project's profiles, because that category is not really a good idea. It's too broad to be useful.

Thanks Lianne,

Then I stop feeding [[Category:Quebecois_project]].

As planned & announced, ancestor profiles have been moved out of the Quebecois Project Category (see http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/107262/want-to-help-put-templates-and-categories-on-quebec-profiles). However, that's resulted in none of my ancestors who are in the project but weren't born in France being "findable" in relation to the project. For those who were in Quebec in 1666, I've started trying to get them in the right category under http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Recensement_de_la_Nouvelle-France_en_1666 - but that category isn't under the Quebec Project either... should it be? Or is there something in the works that will have those 10 districts under the project (not restricted to 1666)?

Liz, could you provide the names of a few inhabitants you believe were not included within the census reports of 1666, 1667 or 1681?
Hi George! My comment was not about who was or was not listed in the census reports. It was that the WikiTree categories for the census reports are not included as subcategories of the Quebecois project. When I've found my ancestor profiles who belong to the Quebecois project & looked them up in the reports, I've found them there. It's finding the profiles that are part of the Quebecois project that's the problem, since the project box does not include a category. Hope that makes sense. My head's spinning just a bit from trying to explain it. Cheers, Liz
