Updated 1852 Cadastral Map of Dobromil in the Gesher Galicia Map Room #galicia
Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
Now updated on the Gesher Galicia Map Room: A complete full-color
lithographed 1852 cadastral map of Dobromil (Dobromyl), today in
Dobromil is a small town which had a significant Jewish presence, and
it was more "urban" than many of the towns surveyed in Galicia by the
Austrian Empire. Residences and businesses are concentrated around an
orderly square composed entirely of masonry buildings, unusual for the
period and the town's size.
We had previously posted an intermediate-stage map of the town from
the same survey, but this final-stage cadastral map is both more
valuable for research and more beautiful. We thank Alexander Nazar of
the Lviv Volunteer Center:
for alerting us to the availability of this map across the border, in Poland.
The LVC is a non-profit organization conducting social and heritage work
in and around Lviv; they have an active Jewish heritage project in Dobromil.
