A few errors with my great grandparents names and my great uncle and great aunt.

Home / 1911 / Saskatchewan / Moose Jaw / 19 Townships 18 / page 18

Line 30 164 Halliday [b]Colin[/b] - Should be John Halliday

Line 32 164 Halliday Crolyn should be Evelyn Halliday

Line 33 164 Bartlat(?) Seymore should be Bartlett.

Thank you, Linda

Ref.: 1911 / Saskatchewan / Moose Jaw / 19 Townships 18 / page 18

Line 30 - the given name has been corrected to "?ohn", because the first letter written by the enumerator does not look like any of his other "J" on that page.

Line 32 - the given name has been corrected to "Evelyn".

Line 33 - The surname has been corrected to Bartlet, which is what I read the enumerator wrote.

The policy of this web site is to transcribe the name as written on the original census page.

What if I find an error in the original census?
If the error is in the original census document:

- a surname note provides an alternate surname spelling and allows the members of this family to be identified in the result of a search done on this alternate spelling. When entering a surname note, indicate if it applies to the entire family or only to this individual. Also, please include the bibliographical reference to the source that corroborates the surname provided, and if applicable, add an associated note.

You will find much more information on this at Surname Notes

-for a discrepancy in the given name, gender, and/or date of birth - an online or off-line birth record link is the preferred way to annotate the correct information.


Cheers,
