1911 / British Columbia / Vancouver / 50 South Vancouver / page 3
Lines 1 to 5 none of these names show up in the surname search for Hester.

1911 / British Columbia / Vancouver / 50 South Vancouver / page 3
When you do the surname search for Hester the name David is listed for line 15 when it should be Reuel.

Gibson274,

The entries for lines 1-5 do not appear in the surname search for "Hester" because the search index has not been updated since the surname was corrected to "Hester". The process to update the index is manually initiated by the site administrator.

Line 15 - The given name is currently "Reuel". It was most likely corrected by the transcriber.

Cheers,

When you do the surname search for Hester the name "David" is incorrectly listed for line 15 on the search index when it should be Reuel. When you press the link the name "Reuel" is correctly transcribed. But if these were not my relatives and you were going by the search index you would not know this.

Gibson274,

The given name appears as David vs Reuel in the search result is because the search index has not been updated since the given name was corrected to "Reuel". The process to update the index is manually initiated by the site administrator (I do not know when this process was last initiated. I will ask the site admin to initiate this process).

Cheers,

Gibson274,

The site admin ran the process to update the 1911 search index tonight and
A) the given name Reuel now appears instead of David, and
B) The Hester family members on line 1-5 of 1911 / British Columbia / Vancouver / 50 South Vancouver / page 3, now are included in the search result for Hester.

Cheers,
