Moravian Census Records

Maybe I am half-blind, but I cannot seem to find on-line census records for Kromeriz for any years other than 1857 and 1869 at the Family Search site (https://www.familysearch.org/search/image/index?owc=Q67Z-XSY%3A1291650305%3Fcc%3D1930345).  I have a partial image of a 1900 census for Kromeriz so I know they are in some archive albeit not necessarily on-line.  Any ideas on how to find these without jetting off to Czechia?

As I know, the efforts to digitalize the census records of 1857-1929 in cooperation between Familysearch and the Moravian Archive of Brně started in 2014 (see https://dighist.hypotheses.org/112, at the bottom of the german arcticle). My best guess is that Familysearch itself and the archive of Kroměříž (http://kromeriz.mza.cz/) both know its current status. But as the article states, there are 661 microfilms (or 1 km of archive material) to work on, so it may take some time.

Just for sure: You are explicitly searching for the census? As George and Thom have mentioned, the records of the roman-catholic church are available: Church Records of Kroměříž @ Acta publica

“Go” to the appropriate Czech Archive. These are online, and there is a lot of information there. My experience is that Family Search has only a small part of what is available in the Czech archives.

I do not know if this specific census is online, but the Czech resources are better than Family Search.

ActaPublica is the archive for the region but there are no census records there AFAIK.
