The nominal census data for the city of Victoria, 1901, on this website was provided by the Canadian Families Project external [CFP]. The CFP is an interdisciplinary research project based at the University of Victoria. The CFP dataset was compiled in 1997 and consists of over 22,000 records. I am grateful to the CFP director, Dr. Eric W. Sager, and his colleague, Dr. Peter Baskerville, for making this data available to the viHistory project.

1901 nominal census data for census districts outside the city of Victoria, from Saanich to Cape Scott on Vancouver Island, was generously provided by the British Columbia Genealogical Society external [BCGS] in 2006. The BCGS is a "non-profit organization dedicated to the perpetuation of British Columbia's heritage and the collection, publication, and preservation of materials...relevant to genealogical and historical research." This portion of the Vancouver Island census consists of over 25,000 records transcribed from microfilm by BCGS volunteers in Campbell River and elsewhere in British Columbia. I greatly appreciate their contributions. Special thanks to Iline Gronland, volunteer coordinator for the 1901 BCGS census project; Peter Claydon, database project designer and manager; and Diane Rogers, BCGS secretary, for facilitating this addition to the viHistory database.

Thanks also to David Badke, programmer at the Humanities Computing and Media Centre [HCMC] at the University of Victoria. In December 2006, he integrated thousands of records from the 1901 Victoria City census and the 1901 Vancouver Island census into a single, coherent, machine-readable database.
