Abstract We compute the posterior distributions of the initial population and parameter of binary branching processes, in the limit of a large number of generations. We compare this Bayesian procedure with a more na\"ive one, based on hitting times of some random walks. In both cases, central limit theorems are available, with explicit variances.
