RE: 1911 Census site
I’m betting there will be unpredictable access for a while. When the 1906 census was released it was up/down quite a bit for the first 3 or so weeks I think.
If anyone finds it useful, I downloaded the following pdf files yesterday while it WAS up – and would be happy to forward particular ones (the full set take up 160 GB – far to much to pass along!) by e-mail attachment when I get back home tonight. Be sure to reply to me personally – not the whole list.
Also, Gordon Lane , Lois Sparling and I have been talking about the AFHS support for a transcription project. It’s been narrowed to Alberta and a draft spreadsheet template is underway. More details from Gordon or me soon. Our ability to get a website online with links to the image files as was done for the 1906 census is dependent on our access to the Archives website as well.
PDF files available from Judii:
( Calgary ), Subdistrict #34/35 pp 1-58
District #1 ( Calgary ), Subdistrict #54 pp 1-34
District #1 ( Calgary ), Subdistrict #55 pp 1-22
District #4 ( Medicine Hat ),Subdistrict #56 pp 1-8

I haven't been able to get onto this site since Thursday afternoon. Has it crashed? Has anyone managed to access it at a particular time of day? It's 2:30 a.m. and still no success. Thanx.
