The 1906 and 1911 census should reflect the names in the 1901 census. The Swehun name is confirmed by the obituary of Jon Swherun who lists Andrew as his father.
Tazka (also called Tacia) was head of the household because her husband Kost Swerhun drowned shortly after arrival. Andrew is listed as a child. ... name&Go=Go

Hi Diana -

1906 clearly reads Swirhun and has been correctly transcribed.

In 1911 I have accepted a proofreader's correction to Swyrhun so the transcription now accurately reflects what is written.

We appreciate your scholarship and research in this area but it has been previously explained to you that transcribing-as-written is a fundamental principle of this index. Please respect this when you request corrections.

To repeat, I would encourage you to add surname notes where you have information to show that the transcribed name differs from the "actual" name.
