Answers are the (non-Canadian) places of birth recorded by census of Canada, 1911, published in "Fifth Census of Canada, 1911", vol. 2 (Ottawa, 1913), and "Birthplaces by sex for Canada and provinces, 1931" (Dominion Bureau of Statistics, Census Bulletin no. XV, 1932, with comparative tables for 1911). For the UK the censuses recorded certain subdivisions rather than the entire country. Other countries and/or colonies may be joined together but each part should bring up the answer. Anything missing was probably included in "Other", which is not included here. Remember what was part of Canada in 1911, and also that some countries may no longer exist!
