Saltcoats / 27 Townships 23 / page 8:

Not sure how transcribers were able to get as much as they did as this page is very faded.. amazing job to sandee! I used some creative photoshop contrasting effects just to confirm that the census matched my family tree info. Corrections below:

Line 1: Frith Sarah Edith Column 9: 1879
Line 2: Frith Joseph Maxwell Column 9: 1905
Line 3: Frith George William Column 9: 1908 (My maternal grandfather)
Line 4: Frith Edith Lullian Column 9: 1910 (Her actual name was Enid, but it is definitely written as Edith in census.. no one ever knew her middle name.. great find!)
Line 5: Clarke(?) Gertrude Column 3: Sharpe Gertrude Column 9: 1894 Column 10: 18 (Gertrude was Sarah's younger sister)

Great work on transcribing!

Hi Mdlebeau -

I have entered some, but not all, of your suggestions. The original transcriber or another volunteer will have to review and accept the corrections. ... anada+page

You'll note that I think your grandfather was enumerated as Georgy.

The dates and ages for lines 4 and 5 are really difficult. Have you found these people in the the 1901 or 1906 censuses? If so I could link them for you and that might give me greater confidence on the last few uncertainties.

Thanks for your input.

Mark's requests for corrections are now updated. Thanks for his effort to read properly that very fade page.
