Publisher: Archive CD Books GB
This CD-ROM set of the Huntingdonshire 1841 Census comes on 3 CDs, and consists of digitised images of the original census enumerators' books taken from microfilm (not microfiche) as it is higher quality. Please note: Censuses are organised by Registration Districts, which DO NOT necessarily correspond with county boundaries. A set of census records for a Registration District may omit some places within a county, and/or include places from adjacent counties.
These are very old original hand written records. The vast majority of pages are readable, but there may be some pages that are illegible due to faded ink and the techniques used to film the records. The scanning is done from films and we apply enhancement techniques to obtain the best possible results. When you order the census CDs, you accept that some pages may be difficult to read or illegible.
Place Indexes are included in the CD set. Place, Piece number, Folio. That makes it really easy to locate a place in the census enumerator's books so that you can begin your searches. In addition, each 10th folio number is book marked in the files on the CDs for fast navigation.
This is real primary data. Note that the CDs contain images of the actual pages of the census enumerators' books. Real original primary research data. (Not transcriptions in text format). What you see is the original hand written documents. That does involve you reading the pages rather than typing in a name and expecting the computer to find it. However, you will very quickly become used to the handwriting styles of the different enumerators, and it is easy to click through the pages at even low magnification to spot the people you are looking for.
