Languages of publication
The Tsar ukase from 7th June 1846 imposed on landowners a duty of making out household register charts, i. e. lists of obligations and rights of the rural inhabitants of villages and towns, which turned out to be exceptionally detailed in comparison to the old ones. The legislator assumed that writing down ”remunerations, obligations and duties” would be the first step in the process of liquidating additional payments and forced renting. A description of households included in the chart contained a few basic elements. Apart from the information which using the present nomenclature could be called personal data (name and surname, profession, house number), the chart contained 6 categories: “farmers” wages and obligations towards the landowner, Church institutions, county, government and Insurance Head Office. Unfortunately, the procedure of preparing the chart as well as the process of verification opened a way to giving false information. Regardless of the fact this type of sources is highly valued by historians for research opportunities . The chart presented in the article contains the data concerning inhabitants of Zaklików, a typical small town in the Lublin Region, where apart from crafts farming was the basis of existence. The presented source has additional significance for learning about social and professional structure formed by the inhabitants of Zaklików, because during World War II the files of register office were destroyed.
