New Cadastral Maps: Gac & Bialoboki, part of the Kanczuga Project #poland

Pamela Weisberger

There are two new cadastral maps uploaded to Gesher Galicia's
Cadastral Map Room today, which are part of the "Kanczuga Nearby Towns

Gac Town Cadastral Map 1852

Bialoboki Village Cadastral Map 1852

There were many tiny towns and villages surrounding Kanzuga, which
today is in Poland, near Przeworsk and Lancut. Gesher Galicia is
acquiring landowner records and maps for all of these. While the
Jewish population in these places were very few, they were present
nonetheless, often working as tailors or shopkeepers. Maps are often
a great way to begin your research into these smaller places.

In Gac, there are few stone buildings in the center, with a total of
about 200 structures, but no market square. An interesting feature on
the Bialoboki map, a smaller town of about 100 buildings, are the
ruins of a legendary castle drawn on the map and remnants of a
significant estate.
