Maps & Directories for Lwow, Stanislawow, Czernowitz & Knihinin on the Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Room #ukraine

Pamela Weisberger

Attention Czernowitz, Lwow and Stanislawow researchers!

Gesher Galicia announces four new maps added to the cadastral map room.
Thanks to a frenzied burst of creative activity by Jay Osborn, with the
help of the generous Logan Kleinwaks, who sourced these maps (and their
companion directories,) we have a Loganpalooza of cartographic gems which
are sure to be useful to researchers:

Today, Stanislawow is called Ivano Frankivsk. This map includes a detailed
section of the town center, and shows named districts, some street names,
and major buildings and includes the dependent municipality of Knihinin
Wies which later was incorporated into Stanislawow.

Czernowitz Town Map and Property Owner List 1782, which claims to be
the oldest general plan of the city:
