Brother James appears to be in the 1911 under "Kezluk" with a wife Sophia:

I had the same problem with an aunt's family who were Ukrainian.  Spelling plus transcription from the original was quite bad.  I found them not by transcribed name but by location and scrolling through the pages.

In your case I would go here http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/census/1911/Pages/1911.aspx Select Manitoba and in Keywords type in St. Andrews which is the broader area of where you are searching then scroll through the families.  You could also add given names to help narrow the search.  1st gen immigrants tended to stay together so they should be in the same area.

Thanks jorose - I was able to find the 1911 James Kizlik record in ancestry using the info you provided from automatedgenealogy.com - was indexed under Keylak.  That gives me hope - I will continue looking for Alex.

Regards,
Linda from Winnipeg

I have also struggled to correlate the information for the 1911 Canada census between sources - between Family Search and the Library and Archives Canada www.bac-lac.gc.ca.

For example for 1911 Canada census on Family Search there is a Bell household in Manitoba comprising of Charles Bell, Florence Bell, Ida Vance, William Deam, Emma Weir, Harry Lowe, Lilly Carruthers and Alice Mcclove and these details are both in their transcript and in the original page shown, citing Library and Archives Canada as the original source.  But on the Library and Archives Canada site I can't find them at all and I've tried putting in a few of the names, not just head of the household.

Does anyone know why please?

Hi Liam,

It will be a transcription problem...

You can go to the 1911 census search page on the LAC site and leave the name fields blank... choose Manitoba in the province search box...then expand "Hide/Show Advanced Search options".  You can see from the top of the image on familysearch that the District is Winnipeg, subdistrict number 26, page 9.  Input that information and you come up with the same page on the LAC site.  Looks like Bell is transcribed here as Bele.

Perhaps it is related to the bad writing?

This is what automatedgenealogy has for its transcript. Click on split view at the top for the image here.....

http://automatedgenealogy.com/census11/View.jsp?id=33701&highlight=37&desc=1911+Census+of+Canada+page+containing+Lilly+Carruthers

Lilly seems clear here but she still doesn't seem to turn up on the LAC website for whatever reason.
