1828 census of New South Wales

In my 'Australian Royalty' database, I've decided to concentrate on families from 1788 until about 1850 and in particular the period up until 1830. To this end I've bought a hard copy version of the 1828 census, and for the moment am endeavouring to add and connect all entries that consist of a family with children.  This task is quite a bit larger than I had at first anticipated. I'm up to 'Anderson", but will keep slogging onward. Reading a census sounds dull but the 1828 one is an exception in that with a bit of imagination it gives a glimpse of what life was like in those times.
