Issues with Canada 1911 Census
« on: Friday 20 March 20 04:01 GMT (UK) »
My husband has several relatives who arrived in Canada in 1910 but I can't find them in the 1911 census, using both the Ancestry and FamilySearch searches.  They were living in Manitoba, around the Garson area, largely working at the quarry there.

Any help much appreciated.

Have you tried searching on <automatedgenealogy.com>? They have several of the census records from Canada, and you can search by province.
When you find the transcribed list of names, you can see the image of the original document by clicking on 'split view' at the top of the page.

I had a quick look at Garson early on but none were listed. It could have been the Ancestry search but, as Sandra says, names, etc. would  help  :)

Yes, very cheery, Sandra  :)

Thanks all - especially for the offers of help. 

The names I am looking for are Kizlik (which has been spelled Kaslic, Keslic and so on) and Borysowich (Borasowicz, Borisiwicz and so on) and Horosko (Horoszko)  in other documents and censuses.

I was also wondering if anyone has information on whether or not these newly arrived immigrants from Galicia (Austria) were hesitant about being included in the census for concern about their safety or ability to stay in the country.

Thanks much

The name Kizlik does appear on some Canadian records but we would need a name and date of birth at least to check.  (Some crossed the border from USA to Canada and some are listed as born
Austria)
