This may be of interest to someone on the list.
Hi Sandie and Jan
I've been talking to Rod Neep of Archive CD Books about his scanning the
Cambridgeshire 1861 census to CD as part of his ongoing project and as
he feels uncertain of how well it would sell and cover the costs
involved he won't commit to doing it until interest is sufficient.
It occurred to me that there may be others like me, who would love to
obtain a copy of the scanned census for Cambridgeshire on CD, and
wondered if you could perhaps consider publicising the idea through your
lists and see if enough people would register an interest to encourage
Rod to add this to his project file?
I reproduce below copies of the messages from CDBooks-L in which this
has been discussed... as you'll see he needs 100 people to make it
viable - so far 2 of us have said yes.
Any help/support would be greatly appreciated.
