Guide to Doukhobor Census Records

by Jonathan J. Kalmakoff

There is probably no other single group of records in existence which contain more information about our Doukhobor ancestors than census records. Censuses are an official government count and description of the people of an area and contain valuable genealogical data. Doukhobors have been enumerated in a variety of censuses, taken for a variety of purposes, including taxation, electoral representation, homestead entry and exemption from military service. The following guide describes Doukhobor census records in Canada and the United States in the 20th century – their historical background, dates, content, usefulness and reliability, and availability of original records and published indexes.

Canada Census

In accordance with The Census Act, the Government of Canada has taken a nationwide census of the population every ten years since 1871 (every five years since 1971). The purpose of the Canada Census is to determine population size and distribution, taxation, electoral representation, planning and resources. The first Canada census to include the Doukhobors is 1901. The most recent Canada census to be released to the public is 1911.

1901

Description

Fourth decennial census. Doukhobor population of 7,740. Census day of 31 March 1901. Enumeration was to be completed within thirty days. Census conducted by 8,800 census enumerators (Census Commission, Department of Agriculture). Census organized by province and within provinces by district and sub-district. Census lists the name, sex, color, relationship to head of household, marital status, date of birth, age at last birthday, place of birth, year of immigration, year of naturalization, nationality, religion, occupation, living on own means, employer, employee, working at trade in factory or home, months employed at trade, months employed at other profession, earnings for trade, extra earnings, months at school, ability to read, write and speak English, mother tongue and infirmities of each person. Census schedules are handwritten. Remarks: Doukhobor entries are found primarily in The Territories as well as Manitoba. The Doukhobor entries in this census are incomplete as 2,811 Doukhobors in 23 villages refused to be enumerated. Also, it contains duplicate entries for 1,021 Doukhobors in 9 villages; these villages were visited twice by census enumerators from adjoining sub-districts.

Doukhobor Village Census

In 1899, the Government of Canada reserved several large blocks of land for Doukhobors to select homesteads. Over the next six years, entries were made for 2,383 Doukhobor homesteads comprising 422,800 acres of land. Much of this land was brought under communal cultivation by Doukhobors residing in villages. By 1905, however, a crisis arose when Community Doukhobors refused to apply for individual homestead patents. At the same time, a rush of new settlers demanded entry on the unpatented Doukhobor lands, still Crown property. In response, the Department of the Interior dispatched a team of homestead inspectors to inspect all Doukhobor lands, determine whether or not improvements had been made, investigate irregularities and conduct a census of Doukhobor villages pursuant to The Dominion Lands Act in 1905. A census revision was conducted in 1911 and 1918. 

1905

Description

Doukhobor population of 9,198. Census conducted November 1905. Census conducted by J. Seale, D.C. McNab, J.B. White and J.S. Gibson (Homestead Inspectors, Department of the Interior).

Census lists the name, age, sex, relationship to head of household and denomination (Community or Independent) of each person, the location of each homestead entered upon, the amount of cultivation on each homestead and the type and number of buildings, stock and equipment. Census schedules are typewritten. Remarks: Some parents gave false ages for their sons so that they would be eligible for homestead entry. Some Doukhobors refused to give their age. Scattered throughout the census are remarks about some of the persons.

Independent Doukhobor Census

In 1916, the Society of Independent Doukhobors was formed for the purpose of preserving the military service exemption of its members during the First World War. In 1918, the Society sent a delegation to Ottawa where the Government of Canada assured them that the original exemption granted by Order-in-Council P.C. 2747 on December 6, 1898 was still valid and that Independent Doukhobors would be treated in the same manner as Community Doukhobors. In order to determine the number of Independent Doukhobors who qualified for military service exemption, the Government of Canada ordered the Society to conduct a census of its members pursuant to The Military Service Act in 1918.  A census revision was conducted in 1924.

Notes

Completeness

Sometimes census enumerators failed to complete the entire census form for each household. For example, some 1901 Canada census entries list the head of household only; others list persons by initials; still others omit dates of birth.  As well, Doukhobors sometimes refused to be enumerated by census takers. For example, over 1,000 Doukhobors in British Columbia refused to be enumerated in the 1911 Canada census. Occasionally census records contain duplicate entries. For example, the 1916 Census of Northwest Provinces contains a number of duplicate entries where census enumerators from adjoining sub-districts enumerated the same population twice. The purpose of a census can also limit its completeness; this is especially true where the focus of the census is a specific group or interest. For example, the 1918 Independent Doukhobor census was never intended to be an enumeration of all Doukhobors in Canada – only Independent Doukhobors.

Accuracy

While census records contain some of the most valuable information available, they may also contain false and misleading data. Mistakes were sometimes made by census enumerators while entering information. Census enumerators were not required to consult original records, nor even ask members of the household themselves to secure their data. They could and did question neighbors, small children and visiting relatives. Family members may also have provided incorrect information to census enumerators, inadvertently or deliberately. Often Doukhobors did not know or remember and could only guess their age. Occasionally, Doukhobor parents gave false ages for their sons so that they would be eligible for homestead entry or else ineligible for military service. Sometimes even if the data was correctly entered, the format may be misleading. For example, children listed as sons and daughters of the head may be step-children or adopted. Researchers must critically evaluate and corroborate such data with other material to ensure accuracy.

Spelling

Many challenges arise with the spelling and form of names in census records. Most Doukhobor immigrants were illiterate and did not know how to spell their own names. Those who were literate in Russian were not necessarily literate in English. Census enumerators who did not understand the Russian (or broken English) spoken by Doukhobor immigrants often recorded the names phonetically the way they sounded. As a result, many alternate spellings were recorded for the same name. For example, the surname Fofanov appears in the 1901 Canada census as Fofanoff, Fonfonoff, Fofonfo, Fofon, Fonfon, Fachwano, Fecheno, Hohanoff, Hochwano, Hochwanow, Hogheno and Whochwanow. Researchers must be able to recognize alternate spellings for the surnames they are looking for. Note also that the form of name used by Doukhobors may vary from one census to the next. For example, a Doukhobor might be listed by their proper Russian name (i.e. Vasily), a diminutive Russian name (i.e. Vasya) or an adopted English name (i.e. William or Bill). 

Legibility

Worn and torn pages, faded or smudged ink, poor handwriting, and improper focus or exposure for microfilming all affect the legibility of census records, making them difficult to decipher. For example, the handwritten entries in the 1901 Canada census are often illegible. Sometimes pages may be microfilmed out of order or missing altogether. For example, one page was missed during the microfilming of the 1905 Doukhobor village census by the British Columbia Archives.

Census Indexes

An index is a typed copy of information extracted from an original census record which is published online or offline. Indexes can be excellent finding aids for genealogical research, allowing the researcher to pinpoint specific data and significantly reduce research time. However, indexes vary significantly in the quantity of information they contain. Some contain a list of names with or without other details, while others are full transcriptions of the original records. Similarly, indexes vary substantially in the quality of information they contain. Some have serious errors and omissions (especially regarding spelling), while others are very good indeed, having been checked and double checked. Accordingly, indexes should be used with caution. Whenever you trace an ancestor in a census index, you should also always look at, and if possible, obtain a copy of the original census record.

Scope of Census Records

Taken together, there is a broad scope of census records containing information about Doukhobors for the first two-plus decades of their life in Canada and the United States. These records are summarized below for quick reference.

Notes

Doukhobor surnames were not evenly distributed throughout the villages in the 1905 census. They varied from area to area. Many surnames – even common ones – tended to concentrate in some areas rather than others.  At the same time, there was much family movement between villages, so be sure to check the census records for all villages in which the surname occurs.

Where a village name occurs more than once in the census, it is denoted by the first letter of the reserve in which it is located: North Reserve (N); South Reserve (S); Good Spirit Annex (GS); and Saskatchewan Reserve (SA).

Note also that several Doukhobor surnames were either not in use (i.e. Anutushkin, Makaroff, Nadain, etc.) or else did not arrive in Canada (i.e. Belovanoff, Yaschenkoff, Harelkin, etc.) until after 1905, and therefore, they do not appear in this index.

If you have found a surname that you are researching and would like to see the full data from the census, consult the Doukhobor Village Census Index by Jonathan J. Kalmakoff to obtain microfilm copies of the census held by Library and Archives Canada, or else consult the book by Steve Lapshinoff, List of Doukhobors Living in Saskatchewan in 1905 for a transcribed copy of the census.

For a frequency study of Doukhobor surnames, male personal names and female personal names that appear in the 1905 census, see Frequency of Doukhobor Names in Saskatchewan in 1905 by Jonathan J. Kalmakoff. 

Village-Surname Index for the 1905 Doukhobor Census

by Jonathan J. Kalmakoff

The geographic distribution of a surname can tell you a lot about your family history. The following index is of Doukhobor surnames that appear in the 1905 Doukhobor Village Census in Saskatchewan. Search geographically by village to find the surnames that occurred in the village in 1905. Then follow the instructions at the bottom of this page to consult the full extracted data from the census. Search alphabetically by surname .

Notes

This finding aid may be used to locate Doukhobor census enumerations both in the original census records and in census transcriptions such as those provided online by Ancestry.com or Automated Genealogy. For an overview of the 1901 Canada Census, including its historical background, content, usefulness and reliability, availability and published indices, see the Guide to Doukhobor Census Records.

Where two or more villages share the same place name, it is denoted by the first letter of the reserve in which it is located: North Reserve (N); South Reserve (S); Good Spirit Annex (GS); and Saskatchewan Reserve (SA); and within the reserves by numbers (No. 1 or No. 2).

The 1901 Canada Census is incomplete as 2,811 Doukhobors in 23 villages refused to be enumerated by census takers. These include the villages of Novo-Petrovo, Kamenka, Nikolayevka, Rodionovka, Smirenovka, Voskreseniye, Vossianiye, Efremovka, Tambovka (S) and Terpeniye (S) in Kamsack Sub-District No. e(2)-1; Blagodarnoye in Kamsack Sub-District No. e(2)-2; Sovetovka and Spasovka (S) in Pelly Sub-District No. x(2)-1; and Novo-Troitskoye (N), Vera, Lyubomirnoye, Bogdanovka (S), Mikhailovka, Osvobozhdeniye, Pokrovka (N), Spasovka (N), Stradeyevka and Tikhomirnoye in Pelly Sub-District No. x(2)-2.

Also, the 1901 Canada Census contains duplicate entries as 1,021 Doukhobors in 7 villages were enumerated twice. These include the villages of Pozirayevka (SA), Uspeniye (SA), Troitskoye (SA), Gorelovka and Tambovka (SA) in Muskeg Lake Sub-District No. m-1 and Tiefengrund Sub-District No. n-1; Petrovka in Muskeg Lake Sub-District No. m-1 and Waldheim Sub-District No. o-2; and Terpeniye (SA) in Muskeg Lake Sub-District No. m-1 and Ebenfeld Sub-District No. t.

The handwritten village names listed in the original census records for Muskeg Lake Sub-District No. m-1 are disordered and incorrect, and consequently potentially quite confusing.  Please refer to the above index for the correct listing of villages in this sub-district.
