El Dorado County 1852 Census Data
From Microfilm 

The 1852 Census was the first census conducted in California after statehood. There are two microfilmed versions of the 1852 Census: a typescript version prepared by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and a copy of the original manuscript. The DAR typescript version includes a name index. The microfilm copy of the manuscript version (created by the Genealogical Society of Utah) is poor quality and difficult to read due to the color of the ink and paper in the original (poor contrast). The following transcribed pages are from the typescript version prepared by DAR.
