Earlier today Beth asked:

Beth, I prefer to use the Census Compendium template after Mills. I
maintain a large, multiple family data set so have many entries for three
provinces. I do not want a separate MSL entry for each family!! You can put
the National Archives of Canada (NAC) film number in the citation detail as
well as district, subdistrict and page numbers.

For the 1881 census be sure to create a separate source for the LDS CD-ROM
transcription. I have found many transcription errors, so encourage cousins
to consult the film.
