errors on 1820 census index CD

There is an error on the Family Tree Maker 1820 Census Index CD (Broderbund CD-314): the records for Coxsackie Twp., Greene Co., NY, have the wrong state, namely PA. I thought I had found someone I was looking for in Greene Co., PA, but after I got the film, I found there was no Coxsackie Twp. A little sleuthing turned it up in NY!

So, if you using the CD to find someone in Greene Co., PA, be certain to check the township to confirm that it's a township actually in Greene Co., PA.

I haven't checked other townships in Greene Co., NY, but they may have the same problem.

For present-day townships in PA counties, see this web page:

For warnings on this and other errors on the FTM-Broderbund census index CDs, see this web page:
