Drummond Annie 35 Ontario Toronto South ward 1 District 2 page 5 line 23

In case it's of interest -
You have transcribed her year of birth as 1875, Ancestry have transcribed it as 1873, she was actually born in 1872.

Admittedly, this is from one of the worst census images I have seen.

In evidence - she is Annie Balfour Fotheringham BOGIE born 1872 Dec 09 in Alloa, Clackmannan, Scotland and married to Charles DRUMMOND (page 5, line 22) on 1898 Mar 30 in Blyswood, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland

Hi -

I have reviewed the actual 1911 transcription and I see born 1875, age 35. As you may be aware, the mandate of the transcribers for this index is to transcribe what is actually written, even if that contradicts other evidence.

I have added your information as a line note for future researchers.

Thanks for your input to this project. Mark
