Hello Gail,

as of my understanding these census records are duplicates of the original
church records.

The pastors had to write two records for each act (birth, marriage, death).
Each year was entered in one book. At least for the last years between
1910-1945. The origial stayed at the church office and the duplicate was
sent to the local registry office. Most of the records at the church offices
(not sure abt. Przedecz) were destroyed in WW2 or have been lost ever since.
But the duplicats still exist.

They are still kept at the "Stanu Cywilnego" at the town hall in Przedecz
(1910-). You can find the years 1873-1909 at the state archive in Konin and
the years prior to that are at the Wloclawek archive. The earliest
evangelical records were entered in 1827. These books include all the people
that belonged to the parish. In your case Mieczyslawowo belonged to
Przedecz. So the entry should be in the Przedecz records.

During my trip to this area in July this year I lucked out and found many
records at Sompolno and Chodecz. Unfortunately I did not have enough time to
do research in Przedecz. Although I have a family SCHULTZ (SCHULCZ) around
1870 living at Miecyslawowo.

The archive at Konin was closed till Sept. anyway. Not sure about the
Wloclawek archive.
