By ordering CensusTools, you are stating that you understand and agree to the following:
Format (important – not the usual blah-blah-blah)
All CensusTools spreadsheets were created with MS Excel and saved in Excel 97 format. A version of MS Excel for PC or MAC at least as recent as 97 is required to use the spreadsheets. PDF versions of all worksheets are included for anyone without access to MS Excel or to those who just want high quality extraction sheets. MS Excel 97 or later (or a compatible spreadsheet program) is required, but not included, to use the spreadsheets. A compatible program such as LibreOffice or Open Office might be an alternative, but no guarantees are made that the spreadsheets will function properly in those programs.
The CensusTools spreadsheets that you download may be freely copied for your own personal use (for example, to create a new spreadsheet for each surname), but please direct others to CensusTools.com to download their own copies.
Users are encouraged to customize CensusTools spreadsheets as desired to suit their specific needs.
Users may freely publish populated worksheets in their published genealogies in book form if CensusTools.com is credited as the source of the spreadsheets. PDF or other non-editable versions of populated worksheets may be included in genealogies published in electronic form if a link is provided to censustools.com.
Every precaution is taken to ensure all spreadsheet files are free of malicious code. Individual users however are responsible for their own systems and should never load a file onto their system without running their own virus checks.
