Polish addresses in 1800's vs modern addresses
I have found birth records on several decades of ancestors in Poland, in a small village. The records show only the property number (119) for each birth. I understand that in the 1800's homes were not listed by a street name and number. Instead, the village used consecutive numbers for each home/property, and the numbers were not in any numerical order. Home/property #119 could be in the east part of the village while #120 could be in the west. I would like to use Google Earth to view the streets that my ancestors walked. How does one find a modern address that matches a numerical address from the 1860's? Are there any maps of comparable addresses? I would appreciate any help you can provide.
One suggestion is to look at the groups and see if anyone else is focusing on that information. Below please find the link to the Poland Genealogy Research group. They would be help to direct you in the information you require. Hope this helps.0
It depends on where exactly in Poland, but Mapire (https://maps.arcanum.com/en/) has lots of old maps of Europe. If there's a cadastral map of the town, it may be detailed enough for house-numbers. (The military survey maps do not go into that much detail.)0
