I was very interested to read Pamela Weisberger's message to JRI-Poland
about the Czestochowa census pages. This is a hugely valuable resource for
anyone with family in the Czestochowa/Radomsko area. I would take a wild
guess and say that anyone who lived in Czestochowa between the 1890s and the 1920s is listed in these books--along with spouse, children, birth dates,birth places, and sometimes information like marriage dates and immigration.I have just spent the last few hours putting some samples on the web. Icollected these in Czestochowa in May of 2002:

Regarding the Polish "census books" you mention, I can only
speak for my experience in one town: Czestochowa. In the
Czestochowa Archives they still have the "Book of Residents"
which covers the years 1880-1930, and appears to have been
updated as people moved away, got married or died. These can
prove to be a goldmine of new information for any researcher!

Good luck!
