Re: House Numbers of Lviv Records #galicia

Ellen Korpi asked, "Is there any way to correlate the Lviv house
numbers >from the 1800s with actual locations to see which houses were
in the same neighborhood?"

I previously posted to the Gesher Galicia mailing list detailed
instructions for finding the correspondence between Lwow house numbers
and street addresses in 1871. The post is called, "Re: Galician house
numbers but no street names," Mon, 16 Nov 2009. You can find it by
searching the JewishGen database called "The JewishGen SIG Lists
message Archives." I also posted the instructions at
http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=118.

Note that, as shown in that post, it is not generally true that
sequential street addresses correspond to sequential house numbers, or
vice versa.

There might have been renumberings or renamings before or after 1871,
and it would be useful for someone to explore this to determine the
extent to which the 1871 correspondence is valid for other years.
