Be very clear about what you have ordered. It is NOT the complete 1851
Census. That is not available on CD in its entirety.
If you think about it , one million individuals could hardly be the
complete Census for the UK, could it?
Ron Taylor's databases have been on the Internet for yonks. They are
searchable but you have to send email for details. Obviously the CD
would be quicker and more convenient but, given its limitations, I for
one have never found any of my people on it.
Ron's stuff can be found at
I notice HE says 2.2 million names!
I think you have been speaking to someone at FTM who is economical with
the truth....or doesn't know what they're talking about.
Check out the website and see what you think.
