Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia fractions in Lviv house numbers #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks

In the Lviv house numbers presented in the 1871 directory, a fraction
like 2/4 or 3/4 indicates that the house was located in district 2 (of
4), according to the prior arrangement of districts. This is clearly
indicated in the directory by the heading "dawna dzieln[ica]." Note
that there were several redistrictings, so the meaning of 2/4 is tied
to the date. See Pamela's recent message for the gory details.
