One of the long term goals of OGSPI is to computerize all Ontario census records for the publicly available years of 1851 1861 1871 1881 1891 1901.
If the same township is computerized for several census years we can compare the files and set up cross references.
Examples of such Townships are:
Georgina Township in York County 1861 1871 1881 1891
Pickering Township in Ontario County 1861 1871 1881 1891
Bonfield Township in Nipissing District 1881 1891 1901

After every census year the Canadian Government published books with tables of statistics.
These 1851 examples are from pages 40-69 of Census Report of the Canadas 1851-52 CA1BS100C21 at Trent University Bata Library.

Table II is titled: "Upper Canada Personal Census by Religion 1851-2"
The table sequence downward is alphabetic by county Addington to York with a line for each township.
The table heading sequence across is:
 district number
 location ( township or village )
 total population
 Church of England
 Church of Scotland
 Church of Rome
 Free Church Presbyterians
 Other Presbyterians
 Wesleyan Methodists
 Episcopal Methodists
 New Connexion Methodists
 Other Methodists
 Baptists
 Congregationalists
 Quakers
 Bible Christians
 Christians
 Second Adventists
 Protestants
 Discipes
 Jews
 Menonists & Tunkers
 Universalists
 Unitarians
 Mormons
 Not Known
 No Creed Given
 Other Creeds not Classed

In OGSPI we use the historic total population count for every township as practical advance warning of how much volunteer typing is required to enter that township.

We can also use published information like table II to produce organized lists of locations for historical research or tracing group migrations of specific religious groups like Quakers, Jews or Bible Christians.

As of early 2004 a volunteer project to document the Bible Christians of Canada is coming together.
Most of them came from the counties of Devon and Cornwall in the South-West peninsula of England
