Hello,

A sub-district ready for adjudication in the lower town of Québec City.

http://automatedgenealogy.com/census/En ... sp?id=6716

Québec City is a nice and charming city. During the X-mas period, Québec City becomes the homeland of Santa Claus. Here is my gift for X-mas: a video I made last year after a snow storm in the vicinity of my apartment in the upper town. You'll also hear the chimes of St-Dominique's Church playing X-mas carrols:

Enjoy and merry X-mas,

Michel Dubois

Hi Michel -

I enjoyed your video - thanks for posting.

I see Gord has started to adjudicate, so I have started at the end of the sub-district and will work my way forward as time permits over the holidays.

Joyeuses fetes. Mark

Hi Mark Gord and Michel,

I added corrections to the following pages of Quebec City East Jacques-Cartier (Ward) A-13 for your review:

A) page 16 lines 2 & 9
B) page 15 line 3
C) Page 14 lines 12 & 42
D) page 13 lines 2 & 13
E) page 12 lines 5, 15 & 26
F) Page 11 lines 43 & 45

Similar correction should be made to the other pages.

Also on page 2, lines 21, 29, 30, and 45, which are strike out lines, the sex column is either empty or used to complete the name of the individual, therefore it should be transcribe using the "Blank" option of the drop down menu.
The relationship, marital status, date and year of birth and age columns and more have been used to record the individual profession (i.e. the owner of the commercial establishment, and also states the residential address of this owner which is in another sub-district.) which is the reason for the line to be struck out. I can see two ways to transcribe such lines:
A) leave the fields empty in the transcription; or
B) transcribe these fields using the 1911 census notation (i.e. an "*" ) to denote that the field contains a non-standard input, and include a line note indicating the content of the fields.

From my point of view, I prefer option B, but will ask Lindsay how he would wish to transcribe such lines and hopefully he will reply to this post.

Cheers,

Hello Alain, Mark and Gord,

Thanks so much for your updating blitz on my proposal. This is a sweet X-mas that I appreciate.

BTW, I've started to use the 1921 Census on Ancestry.ca to check, find and resolve hardly readable records on the 1911 census. The 1921 census is currenly available for free, but for how long?

See you all.

Michel.

Lindsay agrees with Alain's suggestions for transcribing these pages. He also thinks that Alain's B option is the best idea.
B) transcribe these fields using the 1911 census notation (i.e. an "*" ) to denote that the field contains a non-standard input, and include a line note indicating the content of the fields.

Thank you all for your dedication to this project and I wish you all a Happy and prosperous New Year.

Marilyn
