A friend recently reminded me of an interesting web site – and as I have had some enjoyable minutes using it I thought I would share with you! Enjoy looking at towns near to you and in your family history.
http://www.prairie-towns.com/index.html is a collection of photos and maps from the Prairies – as well as some interesting population numbers. Just select a province and then the first letter of the town.
Here are some interesting numbers:
Red Deer Population:
1901 – 323
1941 – 2924
1901 – 317
1941 – 1223
Hard to imagine Innisfail with only 6 citizens less than Red Deer.
A very nice website – very well done!
