Inventory of Cadastral Maps & Cadastral 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.

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.

Partial list of towns whose records have been inventoried by Gesher Galicia (as of October, 2014):

Gesher Galicia is a non-profit organization carrying out Jewish genealogical and historical research on Galicia, formerly a province of Austria-Hungary and today divided between southeastern Poland and western Ukraine. The research work includes the indexing of archival vital records and census books, Holocaust-period records, Josephine and Franciscan cadastral surveys, lists of Jewish taxpayers, and records of Galician medical students and doctors - all added to our searchable online database. In addition, we reproduce regional and cadastral maps for our online Map Room. We conduct educational research and publish a quarterly research journal, the Galitzianer.
