Added three sub-districts to my collection of guessed names in the 1911
census for Calgary south of the Bow River. The Midnapore area starts with
Lacombe Home and Father Lacombe is listed on page 2.
SW of Midnapore is in the Macleod District. My Excel files are searchable by
guessed names and sometimes house numbers for Calgary. Just looked up the
1911 address on 17th Avenue for a friend's family in the 1974 Calgary
Directory. Their home was replaced by a service station and probably a more
recent building since 1974.
Used AFHS template with farm locations added (if readable.) It is
interesting to select a Calgary district in the online road map and then
look in the Western Lands Database to see who farmed there years earlier.
The census takers missed a few people in June 1911, perhaps away for a
vacation or on the move between homes. Calgary grew from around 4000
population in 1901 to over 40,000 population in 1911 according to Harry
Sanders' Historic Walks of Calgary pg 15. -- Elizabeth
