families left out of 1793 Czech Jewish census #austria-czech #general

Craig Partridge

Every census misses some folks.  I'm trying to get a sense of how many
people were missed in the 1793 Czech Jewish census.

If you know of a family (individuals are trickier, so I'm focused on
families) that was missed by the 1793 census, could you drop me a note
describing how you know the family existed and where they lived?

Czechoslovakia didn't exist in 1793. Are you asking about an area that was in Bohemia or Moravia?
