administrative divisions in Poland throughout history #poland


Jorge Frankon
 

Dear Friends,

I need to find material, maybe books, maps, papers, etc., about changes in administrative divisions in Poland throughout history, mainly before WWII

Maybe somebody can help me by suggesting material.

I appreciate any help you can provide.

Best regards from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

"Throughout history" is a very long time, and "Poland" a very large place, especially given the history of the Kingdom of Poland, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the various partitions of Poland in the 18th and early 19th Centuries, and the fact that Poland was occupied or incorporated into three different empires/kingdoms for over 100 years. 

Where in Poland do your interests lie? And during what time periods?

and

contain some very basic information on the subject of changing borders in the period beginning in 1815.

Many thanks to Roger for your kind reply and information. I agree
throughout history is a very large period.
So, my special interest is between 1850 and 1945.
Many thanks if somebody can help me.
Best regards,

The Times Atlas of European History published by Harper Collins in 1994 covers all periods of history from 900 BC up to 1991 AD. There may well be a more up to date edition.

Perhaps the following book would be of interest:
Historical Atlas of Central Europe by Paul Robert Magocsi

For those who are interested in middle and eastern Europe historical geography you might find my website useful: http://easteurotopo.org/.
Visit the Maps tab in the main menu and look around. If you don't see what you are looking for please write to me. I am happy to help, and I will zoom with you as well.

This spreadsheet contains all 575 Jewish communities from the JewishGen Communities Database for Congress Poland linked to a historical map. Viewers can find their ancestor's town by using the alphabetical tab found at the bottom of the spreadsheet view window: scroll to find your community and click the link. The map contains all the provinces and counties of Congress Poland (1815 to ~1915) well delineated.

I really like the feature that JewishGen has on their site, but just a week or so ago I was on one of the BEST webinars (on Polish records online), hosted by JGS Greater Boston, featuring speaker Julie Shepherd Szczepankiewicz, who did a fabulous job walking through this entire process. Here is a link to her explanation of border changes; https://fromshepherdsandshoemakers.com/2017/01/15/those-infamous-border-changes-a-crash-course-in-polish-history/

Thank you for some wonderful resources here. I have long wanted to put together a set of overlay maps for historic Poland that would work like those high school biology books we had in the USA in the 1960s.  I have the vision but not the minimal computer skills to do this.  Would anyone like to join me? 

Also FYI an article on mapping ancestry Powell, Kimberly. "Mapping Your Ancestry With Google Maps." ThoughtCo, Feb. 16, 2021, thoughtco.com/map-adventures-with-google-1421977.
