from my email:-
   Dont forget this one: 
Randers, Støvring, Sankt Mortens, FT-1834, C3685,  
Skt Morten is the main church in Randers. [and parish name too]

Place name:  Randers Østre Land, outside the town walls to the east

just copy C3685  instead of B9189 in the box above

AND
Did you know that the 1787 census was done in order to get an overview
of available men for military service? 
Have you noticed that all men in the relevant age are 'understreget'
(underlined), 
and what you can't see in a copy 
- they are done in different colours to put them in different groups.

thanks to Hedvig
