Re: Moravia census records 1857-1921 now available online #austria-czech

I also do not speak Czech but Google translate did a great job of converting the web page to English.

I checked the 217 pages of the 1857 census records for the Uhersky Ostrau Jewish community.
There are separate records for the Jewish and Christian communities.

I was looking for my great-grandfather who lived there.  I could not find him.  I could only find one Beer family in the records.
Thus unclear to me whether the records are incomplete, whether my great-grandfather lived in an even smaller community outside Uhersky Ostrau, or whether we have it completely wrong and he lived somewhere else but was born in Uhersky Ostrau.
