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