Another request for 1921 England census Polish Russian place name suggestion #unitedkingdom #poland #general

Hello,
I’d appreciate any suggestions as to where the birthplace of my 2x great grandfather Morris Jacubs may have been.
I’m wondering if BOLSLAIRE could be Boleslaw, now in in Dąbrowa CountyLesser Poland Voivodeship, in southern Poland. This would appear to be the only one of the three Boleslaws I’ve found in the JewishGen Gazetteer, that was part of Congress Poland between 1846, Morris’s given birth date, and 1910 when Morris became a British citizen. However, I’m not sure whether this part of Lesser Poland was still ruled by Russia in 1921 when the census was taken. I’m hoping that someone here will be able to set me straight on this fact.
However, Morris’s Naturalisation papers give his birthplace as BOLSLAVIA, stating that both he and his parents “Jacub ( corn merchant) and Carrie Jacubs” were subjects of the Tzar of Russia. Learned members of JewishGen have suggested that this might be BOLESLAWIEC, now 
 in Wieruszów County, Łódź Voivodeship, in central Poland.
I appreciate that all details given in the census and other official documents are determined by the personal knowledge and dialect of the individual answering the questions but as I am still to find any positive sightings of my family beyond the shores of the U.K., before 1868 when Morris Jacubs married his Gentile wife, I
‘m open to all suggestions.
with thanks and best wishes,
Nettie Edwards
