I’m happy to announce that as part of our Kańczuga Nearby Villages Project, we’ve now digitized and made available a cadastral map of Krzeczowice, a village 2.2 miles east of Kańczuga, which shows up in Kańczuga records with surnames including Braten, Einsidler, Engelberg, Knispel, Lilien, Morsel, Schein, Seidenfeld, Spatz, Wolfman, and Zellerkraut.
The map dates from 1849 and includes the plot numbers and house numbers.
The map is made available in the Gesher Galicia Map Room, where you can also find cadastral maps of Kańczuga (1849), and other Nearby Village Project villages Bialoboki (1852), Chodakówka (1849), Gać (1852), Łopuszka Mała (1851), Siedleczka (1851), and Siennów (1851).
Thanks to the team at Gesher Galicia who made this possible.
Three cadastral maps from the Kańczuga Nearby Villages Project have been found, scanned, and are now available in the Gesher Galicia Map Room. We are very grateful to the team at Gesher Galicia, both in the US and in Poland, that have made it possible to find these and make them available to researchers everywhere.

We don’t yet know of associated house indexes for these maps (like there is for the Kańczuga map), but if we find them we will be sure to transcribe them and make them available. If you have family from these towns, it would be great if you could share information on your family, when they lived in the town, etc. in the comments below.
After several years of effort in the Polish archives, funded by donors from the Kańczuga mailing list, I’m happy to announce that we now have a cadastral map of Kańczuga. The map is from 1849 and corresponds directly to a database of house and land owners that is also now indexed and online in on the Gesher Galicia web site.
The map is online here:
and the house and land owner database is searchable here:
If you want, you can scroll down on the left side, and under ‘Record Sources’ you select:
Kańczuga Homeowners List (1849)
That will show you the 255 records in that database, with 40 records shown at a time. Otherwise you can search in the full database, then select the above source to filter it so only the results from that database is shown (there is no way to directly search just that database).
The database includes the house numbers, and correspond to the house numbers on the map. The original data source, a ledger, has land plot numbers as well, but is not in the database online (yet). Donors to the Kańczuga research project can receive the original scans of the ledger. If you’re a donor and want the original scans, or want to donate to the project, please send me a message via the contact page.
