Re: Wola Sekowa 1852 cadastral maps online
- I have spent many happy hours pouring over these maps. There is nothing like a map to help picture a place. I began to get an idea of life in Wola SÄkowa in 1852, as well as the inheritance process.
There are broader historical and sociological questions that I barely know how to ask. I understand there may be earlier cadastral maps in LwÃ³w which would provide an informative comparison.
The comparison with the present day Wola SÄkowa is striking. In 1852, most everyone farmed. Today, only a few farm; and the population is a fraction of what it was in 1852.
Thanks to Phil for providing space on semanchuk.com.
