Please list as part of the description of the record those counties that are NOT included.  I searched for my John Calkins b.1785 in New York & he was not there as well as there not being ANY Calkins from Wayne County when it was the Wayne County Historian who gave me the 1855 State census info on John Calkins b.1787 which showed his birth county as Chenango (something very inportant that the 1855 shows).  Does that mean that the WHOLE of Wayne County is missing from your digitized version???   I suspect it does since no Calkins at all show up in Wayne County in your digitized version, & they WERE there as the County Historian's info indicated.  I'm hoping it's not just Calkins that are excluded.  Once again - Please list the counties included in your digitized version OR list the counties NOT included in it.  That makes it much more USEFUL to real genealogists.  Not to mention accurate.
