Inventory of Cadastral Maps & Archival Records for Galicia

This searchable inventory contains information on over 1,900 Cadastral Maps, landowner, voter, tax, and school records, as well as Polish magnate documents, which are housed in a variety of archives in Ukraine, Poland, and Austria. Gesher Galicia has acquired digital images of many of these records. The “status” column on the far right side will let you know whether or not these records have been indexed, examined, acquired, are pending acquisition, or were rejected as not being useful for genealogical research.

If you see a record that interests you but which has not yet been acquired, please let us know and we can add it to our list of documents to acquire. Go to our project funding guidelines page to read directions on how to request copies of any of these files, or how to request the examination of surviving records from a town that is not yet on our list. We also welcome donations of data and information.

You can search this database by town name (exact spelling or sounds-like spelling) — and these communities were known by many different names — so please consult the town list at the bottom of this page for the spellings as entered in this database to facilitate your search. Click on any town name below to see that community’s inventory. You can display up to 100 entries at a time using the dropdown menu on the right side of the page, so make sure you’ve checked all the pages of results if your town doesn’t come up at first.
