Census

The first comprehensive Canadian census was completed in 1851. Those up until 1921 with Titus implications have been transcribed and are available on this site. The earlier records containing Titus entries are being worked on and will be posted to the site as they are completed.

All of the United States census records involving the Titus surname from 1790 until 1940 are transcribed and available on this site. An exception is the 1890 census which was destroyed and therefore was not available for transcription.

Some other spellings of the name, such as Tytus and Titis, have been included. It was found that when the name Fitus was queried 784 names came up. Many of those were really Titus names that were misread by the indexer. The end result is that if researchers are unable to find the family they were searching for, it may be that either the family was enumerated under a different spelling, or the family was not enumerated at all. Some of these spelling variations have been indexed under Census Misspellings.

Assumptions On Census Records

In August of 2001 I completed a millennium project of mine when I transcribed the microfilm of the 1891 census for Queens County, New Brunswick, published it and posted it on the Queens County web site. The project was both a challenge and a rewarding experience, involving many hours bent over microfilm reading machines at the Canadian National Archives, and the additional work of putting the data on computer.
