Registration forms for the population started after 1850, when modern municipal administration began to develop. All the inhabitants of a particular municipality or town had to be reported, or registered, at a specific municipal office. Also recorded were any changes of residence, even if the people concerned remained in the same municipality. These forms were not kept after the Second World War (after 1945).
