Yes, in several of the towns around Lodz there are
civil records in Polish back to about 1820, with Catholics,
Protestants and Jews all recorded together. There are
Catholic church records for Lodz itself, going back to 1685,
you might find something there. Also the Pastor from the
Protestant Parish at Ilow (Sochaczew) made occasional trips
to the Lodz area, the Ilow records go back to 1779.
There is a lot of information about when the various
congregations around Lodz were first founded, and when
these towns had their "boom years". Can you be more
specific than just "Lodz area"? Are you interested in
a particular town?
Were the families you are looking for farmers, or
were they involved in the textile industry? That could
give us a clue as to when they were likely to have arrived
in the area.
