Is it anywhere in Poland?
Hello listmembers,
I have been going through a few maps, trying to locate two places:
BO(T)ZEN and V(W)AGETZKO; Unsuccessfully!
The spelling may be wrong but I have no possibility to find out what the real names of those places can be. They were transcribed by a clerk on a marriage certificate in France in 1804.
They are probably located in the north east of Poland (Knigsberg). I know that is not much!
Thank you for your help.
I can see an inquiry made 2 years ago (Fri, 22 Jul 2005 09:03:57 EDT)
I found nothing on the web ref. those two placenames. Trouble is, since 1804 place-names have changed, more than once and sometimes changed completely, without reference to the previous name.
We will have a 300K scan from approx 1830, from Bialystok area, you can have a go there, or try to locate other sheets of this map.
p.s I would ask your questions about Polish legions in a newsgroup (pl.soc.genealogia), you can write in English there.

Hello Naltar, I am the one who posted the inquiry you mention, 2 years ago. I haven't gone far since then. In fact although I know finding those two place names is a lost cause, I can't help trying.
Besides your maps are easy to read and clear and you keep enriching the site, so maybe, one day...
Anyway, thank you for your answer and your suggestion. Ricurima

Can I get some guidance on the projection that WIG cartographers used on the 1 to 100,000 maps?

@JMisiewicz I tried to send an e-mail, but got an auto-response: "The e-mail address you entered couldn't be found" If you want to get in touch, please use e-mail (see left)

I think we need to drill into this... Please check for my e-mail in your inbox! Smile

Hello Marek. I am referring to the Ossada settlements created by Marshal Pilsudski in the Kresy after the 1920 Polish-Soviet war. I am hoping that there exists a map showing the location of these Ossa

03/02/2017 17:27
"Ossadas" is a very generic name (settlements), likewise "Kresy" which stretch from current Lithuania down to Ukraine. Anything more specific?

Dzień dobry Marek. Czy Archive mają żadnych mapy przedstawiając
e lokalizację Ossadas w staropolskim Kressy (sprzed wojny)? Dziękuję, Julian.
