Has anyone been able to see the PDF/JPEG images? I was very excited about the images becoming available for the 1881 Canadian census but the links for both in the record I was looking for are broken (404).

It is unfortunate that all the members of a household cannot be viewed together.
This makes it difficult for those researching family history as the names of the siblings or spouse are the major clues.

How to do we make corrections to our Family names?
Both my Great Grandparents last names have been transcribed wrong. One was questionable, but the other was perfectly legible on the original census, but wrong on the Family search site.

With two windows open, if you search the index through FamilySearch (see http://www.familysearch.org/eng/search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=census/search_census.asp) to locate the person you are looking for and then click on the "household" link in the upper right-hand corner, you will see the "family". Once you determine that it is your people, you can then (in the other window) locate the image on the Library and Archives Canada (see http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1881/001049-100.01-e.php) as referenced on FamilySearch (hopefully they will get these linked at some point). So the short version of this is: use both websites simultaneously. :)
