"census books"- thanks #poland


My thanks to those who wrote to answer my question about Polish census books.

I now know that these were called "tenant registers", or "books of residents"...Ksiegi Ludnosci. They were used in Congress Poland.
Some have survived, and can be researched in the archives that contain records for those particular towns. Shtetlinks has some information for several shtetls for which books of residents have survived.
