Subject: Re: [Kresy-Siberia] Maps of GaliciaThank you Henry for posting this map. Any idea what numbers on the map could refer to? In particular I am looking at the Pinsk section of the map. Southeast of Pinsk and west of Stolin is Gorodno. Just south west of Gorodno is the number 163. Referring to the Remarks section for Data on the Map I read that J.H. Jagerhaus is a Leszniczowka in Polish. My mother lived on a Leszniczowka 3 km out of Gorodno (Horodno). Do you think #163 could be a reference to this place?ZosiaVictoria, Canada----- Original Message -----From: Henry SokolowskiSent: Wednesday, June 28, 2006 7:01 PMSubject: [Kresy-Siberia] Maps of Galicia
Good evening everyone,
Here is a link to some topographic maps of the former Austro-
http://lazarus. elte.hu/hun/ digkonyv/ topo/3felmeres. htm
Just click on the map you want and it dowloads. Warning: The files
These are excellent maps from the turn of the century, showing many
villages in detail. The area covered extends as far north as a line
from Szczecin to Bialystok.
One further advantage is that map coverage extends as far east as
Kiev so that people looking for villages on the Soviet side of the
pre-war border stand a better chance of finding them (today's
southern Belarus and the Ukraine).
And not only that but most of the place names are in Polish.
