Scanned images of the original census enumerator's books for Staffordshire, reproduced on multiple CD sets. This census is immense, containing over 40,000 pages!! 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. The CDs contain the records of Registration Districts.

The publishers are very proud of the superb quality of the scanned images. They've have worked from really excellent films copied from the first generation films at the PRO, and have then used the very best possible film scanner currently available to digitise the images at a high resolution.

Place and Street Indexes are included in the CD set. The indexes contain: Place (town or village), Street (for larger towns), 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 place (and every 10 folio numbers) are 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.
