JRI Poland #Poland House numbers in Lublin Books of Permanent Residents #poland

Olivier Szlos <olivierszlos@...>

Thank you Logan Kleinwaks for his May 4th posting (see below).

As a follow-up, I have found excellent family information in these
census books. Information is both in Polish and also in Russian for
census updates and also for new Census information.
My question is the following: Do the house numbers correspond to
Street names? or were houses given numbers based on some kind of

So the SZLOS (SZLOSSER, SZLOSS) families were residing in house
numbers 606, 609, 612, 620, 626, 630, and 641. Were they all in one
street or a cluster of homes? How do I map these numbers?

Thank you,
Olivier SZLOS

More than 12,000 scans of Lublin Books of Permanent Residents (Ksiegi
Ludnosci Stalej), a type of continuously updated census, in two series
apparently begun 1839/1840 and 1865, are viewable online via

The 1839/1840 series is organized first by religion
(Christian/chrzescijanskiej and non-Christian/niechrzescijanskiej) and
then by house number, while the 1865 series is organized by house
number. There are also several incomplete name indices, though I do
not know the extent of their coverage.

I have not examined this collection carefully and cannot provide
guidance for its use, but perhaps someone else can do this. Books of
Residents are generally a rich genealogical source, but I lack the
expertise to place these in the context of other available Lublin
