I have purchased two 1836 census CDs:
I also describe these products, and a third one, the 1836 Census of Strasbourg, on the Tips and Resources page of the Communities of Alsace A-Z website which I manage.
The quality of these products is very good. The author, C.Geyer, has done a fine job of creating a quality research tool.
If you are considering purchasing any of these products, I recomend that you buy them directly from the source:
"Census 1836" at
In the past, these products have also been available for purchase from an organization named GeneaNet. I advise making purchases from GeneaNet, because they make personal information about their customers available online.
This warning applies only to making purchases from GeneaNet. I have had good experience buying directly from the author at www.census1836.com and recommend that source..
