Re: 2nd Great Grandfather Moshe Mordecai BARNETT found in Kutno, Lodz, Poland #poland

My Lindeman/Linderman and Fux families lived in Kutno (which I visited in 2018)  in the late 1700s/first half of 19th century and I found them in the Books of Residents.  Can't remember if they are on JewishGen or JRI-Poland databases, but they are available via a Polish website:

Think there is an index.

The issue you may have is that Barnett is unlikely to have been the original family name.  Have you traced back through censuses, naturalisation records etc to see if there's any trace of a previous surname?

Good luck!

A complete set of the Book of Residence for Kutno, Poland exists.  This lists all of the Jewish households from the early 19th century through 1931.  I don't know if it is incorporated into JRI-Poland or another site yet.  Many years ago we used a private researcher to extract some information from the BOR but I don't believe any of the Kutno group members were looking for the name BARNETT. I did just look at an index of ALL family names and did not see any BARNETT or anything similar.
