How to determine Warsaw street address? #warsaw


Elizabeth Jackson
 

If a Warsaw house number is indicated as "1101" in 1865, is there a way to determine where it was located?


Alexander Sharon
 

According to Warszawa Taryfa - 1877

https://praktykowaniegenealogii.wordpress.com/taryfa-domow-dla-warszawy-1877/

# 1101 / Grzybów 16

ps
Grzybow 16 is related to Grzybowski Place or Grzybowski Street.

Where can I find Online a Warsaw Street Index for 1915, 1914, 1913, 1912?
The particular Person and Street I am looking for is:

Orla str., 5/7 Tarnower, Adolf.

Many thanks.

Grzybów was a „jurydyka” (a privately owned autonomous enclave within a larger municipality), established by Jan Grzybowski in 1650. The legal entity of a „jurydyka” was abolished by the Polish constitution of 1791. Grzybów was assigned city street names, lot 1101 becoming Plac Grzybowski (Grzybowski Square) No. 16.

Try the Jewishgen Poland Database   https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/ 
If you search under Any field and type in 1101, you will get results for several Warszawa Home Owner lists.  In 1869 and 1870 it was listed as Grzybowski 16 but in 1864 which is closer to the year you are looking for it is listed as Twarda 8   
In 1864 the property was owned by Hersz GOLDBERG.

The indexing of the Warszawa Homeowners list is a project of Jewishgen's Warszawa Research Group.  More informatin on this project can be found at

I know the address in Warszawa of my grandparents' store on Zielna Street in Warszawa - I have a photo and it is listed in the 1928 Warsaw business directory.   Is there a way to find out where it is located today?  There is still a Zielna St in Warsaw and the closest I can get to the address is where the
Macabee Restaurant is now.  However, after the Shoah, many street locations were changed.  Is there a way of finding where addresses or streets were pre- and post Shoah?

Hello,

There is an interesting site for Warsaw that shows old street photographs.  

http://www.warszawa1939.pl

It's only in Polish, but try to use it. Type the street (or with the pre-war house number)  in the field „wyszukaj” and you will receive  several places on the street that have their photo.

Or use the „fotoplan” to check on the map which houses have their photo. Marked green color are houses that survived to this day, red houses are those that were destroyed, but have their photo.

If you need assistance please write.

 

"However, after the Shoah, many street locations were changed"  

To be precise, the houses in the Warsaw Ghetto were totally demolished after the Ghetto uprising in 1943.

The rest of Warsaw was badly destroyed in the Warsaw uprising in 1944 and after. But the houses on Zielna street that survived the war were demolished only  in 1950ies to make a place for the ugly Stalin's Palace and so the house numbers have changed too.

Thanks to Krzysztof Witaszek.  This is a marvelous website.  I recommend it to anyone doing any genealogy work in Warsaw. You can access it in English.  I was able to get a photo of the building where my grandparents had a store in the 1920s, even though the building is no more.

Thank you, Krzystof, for posting this website of old Warsaw photographs. I found the building where my great aunt lived.
