Krakow homeowners 1807/1808 with map #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Details about 1807/1808 Krakow homeowners, including house numbers,
and 1807/1808 Krakow maps labeled with those house numbers are now
viewable online. I have posted instructions at
http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3022 for using the
source, "Plan miasta Krakowa Ignacego Enderle...," which was scanned
by the MCS University Digital Library and is viewable on their site at
http://dlibra.umcs.lublin.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=186. Before
following the instructions, make sure you have a .DjVu plugin
installed for your web browser (such as the one at
http://www.caminova.net/en/downloads/download.aspx?id=1), which
you will need to view the scans.

This source contains a lot of explanatory text in Polish, including a
lengthy introduction. If you are fluent and discern anything in the
text that could be relevant to the instructions, please let me know
and I will make additions or corrections. In particular, the
homeowners lists for the Stradom and Kazimierz sections of Krakow
(excluding the Judenstadt/Miasto Zydowskie) were apparently based on
a survey begun in 1797, but it is not clear to me when that survey was
completed, i.e., whether the lists date to 1797 or could be as late as
1808. Also, the redrawn 1807/1808 map made by Antoni Karczewski
in 1949 contains some street addresses, but it is not clear to me
whether those street addresses date >from 1949 (in any case, they seem
to match reasonably well with 2012 street addresses, at least in the
Jewish part of Kazimierz).

Roman Catholic Diocese #hungary

Alex Magocsi
 

I am the product of a marriage between a good Catholic girl and a nice
Jewish boy. And the nice Jewish boy was a product of a marriage between
a Jewish girl >from Nyirbator and Roman Catholic boy >from Gyulaj.
So, obviously, my personal Hungarian research needs to include both
religions.

Can someone tell me to which diocese the Roman Catholic Church of
Gyulaj, Tolna Megye, belongs? I am searching for burial records.

Thank you
