This CD-ROM set of the Cambridgeshire 1841 Census comes on 4 CDs, and is very high quality 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.
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.
Using Adobe Acrobat Reader you can zoom in and out to read the pages. You really don't have to squint to read the pages. Zoom right in without noticeable loss of detail. That's because of the very high quality of the scanning. Print quality is excellent too! Even on a standard bubblejet printer you can be sure of superb results. You can print first class copies of any page for use in your family history documents.
