Please make a correction to
Census of Canada
Home / 1911 / Ontario / London / 35 London / page 18 split view
Transcribed by: Roseanne Bensette
40 214 Blind Frank
41 214 Blind Elizabeth
42 214 Blind Eva
43 214 Blind Selma

It should be:
Blood, Frank
Blood, Elizabeth
Blood, Vera
Blood, Velma

Thank you very much. This was my Great-grandfather's brother and family. They could now be linked with their correct names that are in the 1901 census.
Blood L Frank 28 ON ELGIN (East/Est) St. Thomas e-2 17 39
Blood Lizzie 34 ON ELGIN (East/Est) St. Thomas e-2 17 40
Blood V Carrie 1 ON ELGIN (East/Est) St. Thomas e-2 17 41
Blood B Mary 60 ON ELGIN (East/Est) St. Thomas e-2 17 42

Karen,

Lines 40-43 - The surname has been corrected to Blood;
Line 42 - The given name has been corrected to Vera; and
Line 43 - The given name has been corrected to Velma.

The 1901-1911 link has been done for Blood Frank, Elizabeth, and Vera.

Thanks,

Alain,

Thank you for correcting the names, however, on review I notice Frank's birth date was correct in 1901 of Jun 1872 and incorrect in 1911. Would you please change 1911 to reflect Jun 1872. Thank you so much. It is wonderful to know that future genealogists will be able to search and find the family history. Thanks for the great job you do.

Karen,

The policy of this site is to transcribe what the enumerator wrote.
No correction required for the birth date of Frank Blood.


What if I find an error in the original census?
If the error is in the original census document:

- a surname note provides an alternate surname spelling and allows the members of this family to be identified in the result of a search done on this alternate spelling. When entering a surname note, indicate if it applies to the entire family or only to this individual. Also, please include the bibliographical reference to the source that corroborates the surname provided, and if applicable, add an associated note.

You will find much more information on this at Surname Notes

-for a discrepancy in the given name, gender, and/or date of birth - an online or off-line birth record link is the preferred way to annotate the correct information.


Cheers,
