The following list shows all Library and Archives Canada's census records that are searchable in databases on our website. Important note : When searching a database, keep in mind that spelling variations of names are common. Also, it is sometimes difficult for indexers to interpret the handwriting of the census enumerators, especially on pages with poor legibility, so databases contain many errors and omissions. If you cannot find a name in a database, you should search the census pages for the place where your ancestor resided.

That database does not include links to digitized images. See Census of Canada, Ontario heads of household. More than 20 years later, the census records for all provinces and territories, including Ontario, were indexed through a partnership with Ancestry.

ME-9 east of Bangor traverses Washington County, an intensely rural area of woods and waters, dotted with an occasional old-fashioned diner and a glacial esker. We like the bucolic atmosphere a lot, because it's different from anything we have in Atlantic Canada. Being from Toronto, you'll likely enjoy the contrast even more. Even better, I'd follow the route I mentioned above through Sherbrooke and the Carrabassett valley.
Also, if you do this journey westbound, there may be customs lines at Calais, ME, particularly if you cross the border in the busy time of the afternoon. B Just inside New Brunswick on this route is St.
Andrews -by-the-Sea, a scenic old town that, in the days before air conditioning, used to be frequented by wealthy Americans and central Canadians escaping the summer heat. The Algonquin , the old railway hotel, still operates as the anchor of tourism in St. East of St. John, NB on the Fundy coast are the St.
Martin's Sea Caves, which you can explore at low tide, and the Fundy Trail Parkway for a hike or a short drive. You can descend to walk on the ocean floor at low tide. C You don't need a long time to get a taste of Prince Edward Island , but you'll hate yourself if you skip it completely. The nicest parts for a short visit are the north coast, from Dalvay Beach westward through the National Park, Cavendish of Green Gables fame and the communities around to Summerside , then the Gulf coast continuing around to Green Park and Tyne Valley. You can do all of this in three hours plus stops, of which I expect you'll have many.
Those are what you'd see if time were really short.
PEI is full of nooks and crannies in which you can poke around, if you have the time. Peters, featuring a minutes one-way dune walk by way of a floating boardwalk through a sizable sand-created lake. Many people sup at lobster suppers. Several little communities feature these in the summertime and even have full color brochures advertising them, held in a special building. They say that the suppers are "all you can eat," consisting of one lobster which is all they give you, so by definition it is all you can eat and unlimited quantities of fixins.
Then there's always Charlottetown , with its numerous hotels, restaurants, and Anne of Green Gables play running all summer. Enter one way, leave by the other. Some motels feature restaurants that are open for breakfast. Some offer free breakfasts, but as to the quality of these, I find that the old adage applies that you usually get what you pay for. If motels are nearby, you can be fairly confident that some entrepreneur within walking distance is going to have a restaurant that's open for breakfast.
Also, many accommodations offer kitchenettes, where you can make your own toast, whip up some eggs and have cereal. I agree about the drive south from Sherbrooke into Maine , but it still takes away time from the Maritimes. You cannot do it all. I'm not sure how much time you realize you are going to spend in the car driving. I agree with the above posts, you should pick a spot and go there, but if you try to see everything, you are going to see it from the car.
I have 2 kids around the same ages as yours, and they wouldn't handle it in the car for that long well. Decide on your farthest destination and head for there first. I tell people to drive on the trans Canada to get to Cape Breton , pick a spot on the Cabot Trail on the West side for days, then do the Trail, head for Louisburg so the kids can play with the soldiers, then start heading back to Ontario , by allowing to full days to cross the USA from the shores near St. Stephen in NB. The route to Sherbrooke through the top of Maine crossing at Coburn Gate is the shortest but no real good mid way point to get you within a day of Toronto.
The route across Vermont and up to Cornwall does give you good med way locations. By the way, find a way that you can make and pack lunches for every day such that you can stop when you want at a spot that suits you. You just need a cooler. Thanks for all the replies and advice. I agree with Cgreno that I don't want to be in the car driving around the whole time. Drive via the States not sure if we should take the Montreal - Maine , St. Stephen route or the Kingston - upstate NY - etc.
Stephen route - 2 days. That's about 15 days. Does that still sound like we'll be doing too much driving?
