Thanks to Maggie McCracken who has volunteered to scan images of the Halifax City 1871 Census. She has scanned and offered the images to be used on this website. The files are arranged in images imbedded into Microsoft Word. You will be downloading a .zip file containing an entire Ward division. These files are quite (I mean REALLY) large, so patience is needed.
