This is excellent information for any of our members of German heritage who were caught in Stalins’ Paradise in the Zhitomierz Area and looking for Archives.
Also valuable information for anyone else doing research in this area.
Quote - Census Records. While, in the State Archives this year I learned that the most complete census records are for the year 1858. Unfortunately, these records are of little value to most of us, as the Germans didn’t come to the Zhitomir region until 1861/62.
Thanks to Bernie Starszewski for the thread in this direction. I consider any reference material for any nationality useful in establishing a history of my own family of Polish decent, for the area they lived in, because if we limit our research to only one specific people of that area, we miss the big picture and information is biased towards one race of people, whereas true research, takes all aspects and the truth is the unchangeable facts for all cases, no matter how the story is worded.
