First of all, before I receive queries, an American is one of our
relatives in many cases, and may transcribe Canadian census.
Transcribing is simple if you have a good magnifying glass as
penmanship was not the best. It is easier if one knows the older
names of an area, also use the little + on images to icrease size
of lettering. [The magnifying glass is my idea -- others may copy]
We have both 1901 and 1911 online, with transcribing on the 1911
I prefer the Automated Genealogy as it is Canada-wide, also if one
has a blank census form, one can write down family data as both
pages are shown -- we transcribe from only Page 1. Finished data
will be archived at Library and Archives Canada.
Many have transcribed the complete images and these are on various
GenWeb and other sites. Also the pages are bilingual.
When one clicks on one of the above sites -- one is asked to SIGN IN,
using your regular email address, plus a password you will remember.
This is to prevent many from possibly making errors on the site and is
a way of control.
Each page must be 50 lines, regardless if 45 of them are blank -- delete
HOUSE number and NAME, leave LINE NUMBER, click on SUBMIT
until you reach 51 -- then click on CLAIM PAGE. It will show 50.
Many pages have been transcribed but transcribers have not left names,
also a page may show only about 11 transcribed, as one can go back
to finish a page. Transcribers have been listed on the 1901 census
pages, and I am certain the same will be done re the 1911 records.
Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Yukon are in a three-way race
to see which provinces/territory are completed 100% first. [Yukon
does have one page repeated -- Rampart House/13.]
Should there be questions, contact me or gordon_watts(a)telus.net
We now have the 1911 census records -- let's finish the job!
The proofreaders will be the next step -- they are waiting!!

To all --
I have spent over an hour checking the various counties of
Nova Scotia -- did not exactly like what I found.
I know some pages are partially finished -- the transcriber
will return and complete the 50 lines.
However, wherever I found only ONE or TWO listed for
a census area, I clicked on SPLIT SCREEN,
This also brought up the images and a place for notes.
When I noted that "hicks" and other words were not on
the images, another little screen popped up with a great
The new message was "No data"
I checked any names given on posted lines -- they definitely
were not on the census images.
Call it housecleaning -- I still have part of Nova Scotia to do,
and hope others join in erasing this idiotic pasttime..
Let's complete this province with names that are on the images
and make certain it is 50 lines -- even if a page only has one name.
Should anyone only desire TWO or THREE lines of information,
PLEASE copy it on YOUR paper -- do NOT transcribe -- your
information might be Lines 9, 10, 11 -- should start 1, 2 3 so
do the complete page -- we do not mind if you copy the data!!!

I have Eli MacKay b. 1898 d. abt. 1970. He married Amy Baker (a home child)
Eli was adopted by Mary MacKay (MacLeod) and Angus MacKay. They lived at
Whycocomagh Portage. Is there anyone out there with information regarding
Eli who was adopted by Mary and Angus? Believe he had brothers and
I look forward to hearing from you.
Made this request before but within the past week new info has come to
light that might help me in my search.
Agnes McGREGOR, born in PA, died N.S. 1919, spouse of William SNOW Jr.
There has always been a possibility that Agnes's mother was a SCOTT from the
North Sydney area.
Last week in MA I came across a photo of Mary Susan SNOW, daughter of
William SNOW and Agnes McGREGOR. The photo was taken about the 1940 and is quite
fuzzy but on the back of same written is
"The year you and the folks went to Sydney Mines
Mother, Dad, Murial
Vida and Myra Scott
Mother's Cousin in
Sydney (North) "
The name Myra could be Myna
Do the names of the Scott girls mean anything to any SCOTT researcher.
Another part of the family story is that Agnes, her mother and sister,
Elizabeth departed PA around 1855 - 1960 and on the way to Nova Scotia, the
mother and sister died and were buried at sea. The ship's captain was suppose to
be a SCOTT.
Any help on this brick wall would be greatly appreciated.
