30th July 2020 - map update
1 New maps:
A nicely drawn and rather long (ca 2.7 m) Topographic Plan of the Szczara River sections (Топографический плань части рѣки Щары) from the collection of Muzeum Ziemi PAN, dated, approx. turn of 18th / 19th c.

Some maps from the collections made available by US university libraries:
- ca. 40 sheets of the Austro-Hungarian 1:200,000 Generalkarte von Mitteleuropa), from the collection of the American Geographical Society), via digital library of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Please be aware that files, downloadable from the site, despite metadata, are NOT 600 dpi, but rather 300dpi.
From the same library
- dwatwo editions of the WIG 1:1 milion map (International Map of the World series)
. According to some information the sheet of Berlin, produced by the German Reichsamt für Landesaufnahme, raised Polish objections, due to some, unspecific, "misinformation" and, as a result, WIG published at least two Polish variants of that sheet. Original, 1930 German edition can be seen and downloaded here.
- German Plan von Krakau, 1:10,000, dated approx. 1942-43

From the collection of the Stanford University, California:
- approx. 170 sheets of the German, updated variants of the original Austro-Hungarian 1:200,000 Generalkarte von Mitteleuropa. Most sheets dated 1940 - 1945, covering ground from Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankivsk) down to Istanbul. All sheets scanned very well and at 600 dpi.
- one (missing) sheet of the WIG 1:500,000 maps (Cieszyn), provisional edition dated April 1939.
- three sheets of a rare German 1:50,000 map type dated 1944/45 that covered (mostly, but not solely) the area of occupied Poland.

Other maps and town plans from the above libraries will be added in August and September.

Hello: I do Polish Genealogy. I need a topo map of Poland with major cities which I’ve never been able to find on the WEB. It should show post partition Poland with an out line of pre-partition Pola
