I surely would not want to speculate, what will be found there, but the
plots are there. So, it's a land record, not building record.
Ina village or town, the land is divided into agricultural land ( fields,
lawns, gardens etc) and construction land ( where some building is on, but
the building itself is not drawn, however the boundaries of construction
land often are the same as the boundaries of the building, though)
Maybe there are also other kinds of maps which would show buildings etc too,
but they would most probably be in some archive.
I say maybe, because the situation varies from area to area.
This kind of work requires several visits to several offices and a couple of
days if not more.

public utilities, roads and airports. Taking my one village of Sulin
as an example, when I go (or hire someone) to the cadastre office, can
I expect to find a plat or drawing of where the property boundaries
were and are today? Utilities pretty well didn't exist 100 years
back, but did they mark roads and local trails? Can I find the old
county line (Spis and Saris) that separated Maly & Velky Sulin back
then? Will they (the drawings, sketches or survey plats) locate or
note the mill, the forester's headquarters, the city hall, school and
other businesses (bar or general store)? May the drawings be updated
periodically so I can narrow down when the volunteer fire building was
erected in Maly Sulin?
I realize these are specific questions as examples, but I intend them
to elicit general answers so others may know what to find - if they
are also interested in the development of the ancestral village. Of
course, many things that apply in one location do not apply in
another. But some of us are curious about the history adn the
Thanks in advance. You provide a treasure trove of information for
those of us outside Slovakia, and this time I want to take advantage
of your knowledge!
