      For your interest
       
      Automated Genealogy is also transcribing the 1901, 1906 and 1911 Census.
       
      Their method of transcribing the 1911 Census is quite fantastic as they have every section, with the enclosed pages, connected to their web page and so you cn do the whole transcribing online.
       
      So when you wish to transcribe, you bring up the page that you want to do online  with the same features as on the National Archives WEbpage( Mr. Sid), so you can enlarge it and move it etc.
       
      Below the page to be transcribed is a page for the indexing.  Many of the entries to be transcribed are already typed out in  drop down menus, and so you do not have to do a lot of typing except for the names and dates.
       
      For instance, Column 6  in its drop down menu has
      hean
      Wife
      son
      daughter,
      adopted
      mother
      father
      and many more,
      so you just click on the correct entry
       
       
      click on 1911
      Click on the Province you are interested in
      Click on the district you are interested in
      Click on the Subdistrict you are interested n
      Click on the page you are interested in transcribing and you will see the page and the drop down menuefor transcribing.
       
      It is a good setup as you have the page you want to transcribe and the menu for transcribing right in front of you.
       
      See if this connection works
       
       
      If you actually want to transcribe , you have to register first and this looks very easy to do.
       
      Its a remarkably easy sytem to use for for a newbe.
       
      The manner in which the Automated Genealogy indexes work is clean and simple and can be organized by last names by Province and then alphabeticized.

        First it is helpful to find names of interest before selecting a page and a
        1911 census index project. Sometimes the names are unreadable but the
        addresses or other columns can be read. A family group with parents and
        several children is much easier to find than a single individual. Addresses
        from the 1911 city directory helpful for selecting sub-districts to search
        for Calgary residents.

        City of Calgary has 41 subdistricts for 1911 census compared to 4 for 1906
        plus one that went around outside the edges of the city limits. I've guessed
        at names in the 1911 Calgary sub-districts south of 17th Avenue and now
        working on sub-district 33.

        The census takers counted each block rather than along a specific Avenue, so
        the Calgary downtown addresses are not in a tidy order like a city
        directory. Sub-districts were divided at 4th Street West.

        If my calculations are correct, there are about 739 pages, close to 36,950
        lines for Calgary south of the Bow River compared to about 11,445 lines in
        the 1906 Calgary census PDF file between the Bow River and 17th Avenue
        South.

        There are also 9 sub-districts north of the Bow River, 159 pages about 7950
        lines for 1911. -- Elizabeth
