      Questions from this census. French is crossed of as language spoken by Louise, Eugene and Roland. He spoke Cree - and it is not listed as a language. Did he speak French-Metis? It also says that Eugene, my grandfather, was in school. He told me he only went to Grade 8. They put him in Grade 8 according to his size and age. He sat behind my grandmother.

        When Monnie was 13 she worked as a servant for Jean & Angelina Moreau in Ottawa city. My mom thinks this is funny given that Monnie was not very dilligent in her domestic chores. I wonder who got her birthday wrong. The census says she was born in December, not August.
