Logan Kleinwaks

I have just posted at
https://archive.org/details/agad_fond350_sygnatura168 photographs of a
book of 1764-1766 Jewish censuses for the following towns (+ some
nearby villages), which I wrote about here in 2018:

Kingdom of Poland: Baranow (Lublin), Konskowola (Lublin) + Wlostowice,
Miedzyrzec Podlaski (Siedlce), Staszow (Radom)

Galicia: Berezhany / Brzezany, Jaroslaw, Kalush / Kalusz, Narayev /
Narajow, Peremyshlyany / Przemyslany, Sieniawa, Skole, Tarnoruda

Podolia: Hraniv / Granow, Letychiv / Latyczow, Medzhybizh / Miedzyboz,
Nikolayev / Mikolajow, Sataniv / Satanow (statistics only), Stara
Sinyava / Stara Sieniawa

Volhynia: Klevan / Klewan

I photographed the book at AGAD in Warsaw and have received written
confirmation >from AGAD that this material is in the public domain and
can be shared as long as a citation is given to the archive and file

Example citation: Archiwum Glowne Akt Dawnych w Warszawie, Fond 350
(Archiwum Potockich z Lancuta), Sygnatura 168.

More details are given at the link above, including a table of
contents with links to jump to the first images for each town.

Anyone is free to index this material, but, if you are interested in
doing so, you might want to first 1) announce your intentions here to
avoid duplication of effort and 2) reach out to the appropriate
Research Directors or Town Leaders at JewishGen, Gesher Galicia, or
JRI-Poland. It is my understanding that Staszow and Miedzyrzec
Podlaski have been indexed but are not yet online. I do not plan to
organize indexing myself.

Also, anyone who would like to share/post some or all of these images
elsewhere is welcome to do so -- just include the citation.

Please note that I am not affiliated with archive.org and am not
responsible for other content hosted there, I am just using it to
share and preserve public images as do the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Museum, Leo Baeck Institute, Library of Congress, Reclaim the Records,
etc. In the future, I may post additional archival documents there
(with permission >from the archives), of both Jewish and more general
genealogical interest.

Thanks very much to AGAD and its archivists and supporters for
preserving this important material and making it available to

I have previously seen mentions of this census in various historical
texts, usually in yizkor books that state the population of a town in
the years before the Holocaust. However, I never knew there were
actual census books around, and I was just thrilled to learn about
this! Much gratitude to Logan Kleinwaks, whose wonderful work over the
years has been invaluable to Jewish genealogy in general and to my
research personally.

I am now wondering if other old census books >from other towns/regions
in Poland exist and can be seen somewhere, whether in archives and/or
online. I am particularly interested in the town of Kaluszyn, east of
Warsaw (which was in a region owned by the Opacki family until the
mid-19th century), as well as several other towns in Congress Poland.

Does anyone know if there is a list somewhere of which census books
exist for which towns? I would be most appreciative for any

Thanking you in advance,
