The following pages are missing from the 1901 census:

Nova Scotia
HALIFAX / Halifax (City/Cité) Ward/Quartier No. 1, A-2, pages 21 (Only lines 48-50 are currently available due to a problem when the page was microfilmed);

Ontario
WELLINGTON (Centre), Maryborough, F-5, Page 2; and

Quebec
Quebec / MONTCALM / Sainte-Julienne G-2, page 9, 10, and possibly 12 and more due to the missing tabular summary.


Please report any missing pages as a reply to this message, and it will be used to update the above missing page register.

Thanks,

Pages 9 to 24 of Sherbrooke Sud E-2 seems to be available from LAC.

to
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/19 ... 171961.pdf

24 looks like the final page. I see no page 26 on ancestry.ca

Phil,

I removed missing pages list for Sherbrooke South and sent a request to the site administrator that pages 9-24 be registered for transcription.

Thanks

Hello, first of all, I'm not sure if this thread is being actively monitored. Second of all, I'm not sure this is a "missing page register" problem.

Anyway, here goes nothing...

I've come across a page that has been transcribed here but is missing from the online databases that I've been able to consult for the 1901 Canada Census (Familysearch, Ancestry, Library and Archives Canada: https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1901/Pages/1901.aspx).

This is a link to the page here:
[url]http://automatedgenealogy.com/census/View.jsp?id=98429&highlight=4&desc=1901+Census+of+Canada+page+containing+John+R.+Dunbar
[/url]

This is a link to the source image at Library and Archives Canada: https://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?app=Census1901&op=&img&id=z000091402.

The only reason I knew that it existed was because I myself had once-upon-a-very-blue-moon-long-ago made corrections to the transcription on this site, back when I first discovered that the 1901 and 1911 census records had been released to the public, and I was so proud of myself for having discovered my grand father's entry on it.

I recently was working on his record and realized I had census entries for him and his parents for every census available except for the 1901 census. I've gotten pretty good at ferreting out census entries from the Library and Archives Canada, Ancestry and Familysearch sites over the past little while yet no matter what combination I tried I could not find his family's entries (and I knew they had to be available because I knew that I myself had corrected the transcriptions :).

What is interesting is that the source page does appear at Library and Archives Canada if you modify the URL for the image.

Do the other sites use the database from AutomatedGenealogy or is this a separate database from those.

Hi Eric -

Great to hear of all your hard work and we are especially glad that it was AG that came through for you in finding your grandfather, with your sleuthing skills.

In looking into your issue I first determined that the LAC index did not skip a page (it happens occasionally, even with AG). I did this by successfully searching for Patrick Harty, the head of the next household down on the same page.

It therefore seemed likely that your grandfather was mistranscribed. By trial and error I found him as Robert CLUNBAR in both LAC and Family Search (I'm not an Ancestry subscriber but I expect it is also Clunbar there).
https://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/19 ... 3a%22ON%22

LAC collaborated with these companies in developing their indexes so it is not surprising that an error in transcription in one place also shows up in the others. AG, on the other hand, was independently transcribed and proofread (77% complete) entirely by volunteers, many of whom had local knowledge of the areas they were working on.

Thanks again for your interest. Mark

At the moment the Toronto Public Library is providing on-line access to ancestry.ca until March :)). I gather that normally you need to be in a library to access the on-line resource. Perhaps your local public library is doing something similar?

As for your sleuthing skills--thank you. I just learned something new and valuable. And, D==Cl. Though, the only Clunbars I found were my grandfather's family in 1901 and a Clunbar from the 17th century in France (and it would not surprise me if that were a Dunbar too :)). And... the Stats Canada search engine cannot handle the wild card symbol at the beginning of a name: "*unbar" returns no hits :(.

Hi Eric -

I believe Dunbar is what was actually written in 1901, correctly transcribed by AG and incorrectly by LAC/FamilySearch/Ancestry. I think this is an old-fashioned D with an opening at the top. You can see it again in the D for Domestic on the occupation column.

Happy hunting. Mark
