Knihynicze (Knyahynychi) Cadastral Map 1876 #general

Gesher Galicia has added a complete single-color cadastral map of the town of
Knihynicze (Knyahynychi, Kniehynicze, Kniahynychi) >from 1876 to the Cadastral
Map Room. This formerly Galician town is today in Ukraine.

This working copy was made >from an earlier lithograph, rather savagely
quartered for carrying in the field, and then marked by hand for a new edition
to follow; the manuscript updates include a wealth of property numbers and many
landowner names, making this a uniquely valuable record of the Austrian
Empire's tax record process.

The direct link is here:

Situated at the edge of the large town reservoir, the center of Knihynicze
shows a large church, several numbered Jewish community buildings (revealed in
the associated landowner records), Jewish and Catholic cemeteries, and many
features for managing the water inlets to and outlets >from the reservoir. For
this composite image, Jay Osborn, has left the rough-cut edges of map sheets
unblended.

The entire map room can be searched here: http://maps.geshergalicia.org
