Re: Posen City Registration Cards--they're up through R! #general

Dear Andre:

I don't think this is the case. I just found a card that recorded the
names of a family with 6 children, all born before 1870 (the stated date
when the card catalog began). The card said that the parents lived in
one place >from 1855 until 1881. The original enumeration of the family
and the mention of their residence since 1855 are in one hand; all
others-->from 1877 to 1925--are in different handwriting, which means
that the card was created at least 4 years before that move.

Residence registration was nothing new in 1870, and I suspect that the
family's information was transferred >from a book to a card around that time.

Hi Roger,

you should have mentioned, that the person must have MOVED in this
period - otherwise it's logical that he/she is missing.
90-95 % of all cards exist!
