Purchasing the North Devon Census Surname Indices

The data on these pages was transcribed from Marjorie Snetzler's surname indices for North Devon Parishes in the 1841, 1861, 1871 & 1891 censuses. I consulted these indices in the North Devon Records office in Barnstaple. I do not have my own copy.
