Gesher Galicia has just added a new map to the Gesher Galicia Cadastral
Map Room:

Lachowce Cadastral Map 1848:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadas.../lachowce-pidhiria-1848/

An incomplete, full-color paneled cadastral map of the village of
Lachowce (now Pidhiria), surveyed and printed in 1848. Heavily
annotated by a succession of Austrian and later Polish administrators,
the sheets of this copy were quartered and hard-backed for travel or a
field update. Buildings and land parcels are each numbered, and many
parcels also have landowner names written in. Although worn and with
missing panels, the map shows mixed-use lands bordering Hleb=F3wka
and concentrated Ruthenian residential/farming lands at center and
bordering Bohorodczany; the Greek Catholic church of St. Nicholas is
located among those fields. Also at the northeast are huge linked
properties belonging to Rudolph Stadion, brother of the Galician
governor Franz Stadion, who freed Galician peasants >from serfdom just
before this map was made.

Lachowce was a village (in German Gemeinde) and Bohorodczany was a
town (in German Ort). In the pre-Austrian times, Lachowce was a
farming village that belonged to the magnate families of Potockis and
Kossakowskis. In 1787, the ownership of Lachowce and the neighboring
town of Bohorodczany transitioned to the Austrian land administration
in a huge land swap. To learn more about the history of Bohorodczany,
the surrounding villages, and the neighboring Stanislawow, I can
recommend Gesher Galicia board member, Andrew Zalewski's book,
"Galician Trails: The Forgotten Story of One Family."
