Gesher Galicia Map Room Update: Bolszowce, Komarno, Kalush, Lviv & more #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

Dear Galitzianers & mapping enthusiasts:

There are some new additions and updates to the Gesher Galicia Map
Room at: http://www.maps.geshergalicia.org

The Komarno Town Cadastral Map, 1853.

A complete lithographed cadastral map of Komarno, now in the Horodok
Raion of L'viv Oblast, dated 1853. This full-color and detailed
cadastral map incorporates the entire residential portions of town
with surrounding farm sections and suburban villages. The map shows
house numbers and parcel numbers for both residential and agricultural
lands. Included in the map are a developed market square, a large
central synagogue, two churches, a cemetery, orchards, and one of the
most interesting networks of canals and waterways in the Gesher
Galicia map collection.

Bolszowce Town Cadastral Map 1846

Partial cadastral map of the town of Bolszowce (Bil'shivtsi),
administrative district of Berezhany, region of Stanislawow
(Ivano-Frankivsk), >from 1846. Cloth-backed, folded, and bound into a
compact book for portability, with hand-written annotations

Kalush Town Center Feldskizzen, undated

Cadastral feldskizzen map of the town center of Kalush (Kalusz),
administrative district of Kalush, region of Ivano-Frankivsk, undated.
The six map sheets copied cover the entire residential area and all
houses; also included are the residential districts of New Kalush (Neu
Kalusz), Bania, and Zahirya Zagorze). A Jewish cemetery and associated
Jewish community lands are located to the northwest of the town
center. A revised cadastral map showing house numbers, and many of the
field parcels have householder names.

Also note that if you are researching Lviv (formerly Lwow, Lemberg,
Lvov) we three maps including a "Greater Lwow General Street Map" ca.
1886, 1903 and 1931.

Because of the extremely high resolution format of these maps you are
able to zoom in to view the tiniest detail including type of house,
orchard, house or parcel number, and, often, the names of the
landowners. Each village or shtetl is different in unique ways. Some
market squares are broad and empty, others are dotted with stalls and
tiny shops. (Often we find maps that show these shops and their
owners, many of whom were women! see: Grzymalow.) In some towns the
synagogue and kahal buildings are close to the center and you can
imagine where the Jewish population was living, worshiping and
conducting business. In other towns, the lines of demarcation between
ethnic groups is not as clear. Some cemeteries are close to town,
others in outlying areas. (Jewish cemeteries have tiny triangles,
Christian cemeteries, tiny crosses.) Some have waterways and mills.
Others are land-locked. Every map tells a story -- and often you've
heard these stories handed down through generations...stories that
involved the geography of the land or the particular features of the
town. Viewing these maps is like taking a virtual stroll around your
ancestral village, traveling back in time, where you can hear those
stories echoed in the wood (yellow) and stone (red) buildings and the
notations made by the cartographers centuries ago. Even if you are
not >from Galicia....you should take a look! We are at over 50 maps,
including specialty maps covering the entire region.

This digital Map Room is a spin-off of the Gesher Galicia Cadastral
Map and Landowner Records Project, a long-term research project to
acquire and publish land and building records in the former
Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia, now Poland and Ukraine. The
project inventory is large, a portion of which contains maps which are
useful to historians and genealogists studying Galicia.

Thanks to our map-stitcher extraordinaire (and Map Room coordinator),
Jay Osborn, our researchers, Natalie and Alex Dunai and Brian Lenius,
and Logan Kleinwaks for providing additional content. (More maps are
coming soon. If you want to join or learn more about the project,
please contact me.)

Dear SIG members

Many of you have in the past consulted my website www.grave-pictures.at .
For various reasons, I have now decided to incorporate the entire database
under www.GenTeam.at with which many of you are already familiar.
Registration on GenTeam is free of charge and offers you the possibility of
further consulting many other databases such as birth, marriage and death
registries as well as obituaries. In this manner a very large amount of many
types of data is easily available under a single web address. Please take

Dear SIGgers,
Collective thanks are due to wonderful austriaczech genners, Hanus
Grab, Jan O. Hellmann, and Julius Muller, for translating the marginal
note recently posted on ViewMate.
Added in 1953 to a [copy of an] 1887 birth record, the note led Hanus
to holocaust.cz, where he found details of the person's married name
(Irma Tolarova, nee Bullavy or Bulowa of Liten), final residence, and
transport details. The date of her final transport, >from Terezin to
Baranoviche, Belarus, turned out to be exactly one year before the
date of death assumed on the marginal note, according to the one-year
statute of Czech law.
Thanking ViewMate, and reminding us all to stop and notice the marginalia.

Bessarabia researchers,

I’m trying to figure out where my great aunt and uncle, Chava (1866 -1919)
and Akiva Greenberg, lived “on a Duke’s estate” near the town
Yedinets>Edinet, Bessarabia> Moldova. Nearby towns were Terebna and
Bricheni.

My dad and my uncle left Verbovets, Podolia, Ukraine in 1920-1921 and talked
about staying with an aunt that lived on an estate with many houses and
remembered watching silent movies there.

Does anyone have knowledge of any “Duke's estate” in this area? Please
email me with any information.

Thanking you in advance,
