old European map was found recently and gives
us a better idea of Berlin in relation to the Oder river which was the
dividing point of Pommerania.

1. The East European Map Room has a 51 map collection from the
Comprehensive Atlas and Geography of the World (published by Blackie and
Sons in 1882 in Edinburgh, Scotland) cover almost all of central and
eastern Europe, including all of the German Empire and the Russian Empire.
This includes European Russia (east to the
Urals) and trans-Ural Asian Russia (Siberia and the Pacific).
2. Poland: One map is posted. We are still actively looking for a really
good map of 19th century Central Poland. Poland did not exist as a
nation for about 126 years prior to the end of World War I. However the
Austrian, German and Russian partitions of Poland are shown as parts of
their respective Empires on the maps in this Map Rooom. We came up
with a map of the Polish provinces of the Russian Empire (i.e. the Russian
partition of Poland) - see the index below).
3. Russia: The European part of the Russian Empire of 1882 is now posted
in ten maps. Asian Russia is represented by seven maps. Four
features are significant in each map of the Blackie and Sons collection:
of these maps show 19th century boundaries between countries and
provinces (which some other maps do not).
divisions of the Austro-Hungarian and German Empires are clearly
shown, as are the Russian guberniyas.
provide a good balance between having enough detail and allowing for
small enough file sizes of relevant geographical divisions to permit
reasonable loading times.
maps were published in English, making the place names familiar
versions that our less experienced genealogy record searchers are used
level of consistancy exists with all these maps from one source, that is
convenient and useful in working with areas covered by adjacent maps. In
other words they seem to fit together well, like matching pieces of a
jigsaw puzzle in most cases.
4. Hutterite Collection A collection of six excellent 1994 maps showings
16th and 17th century Europen place names of importance to Hutterite
record searchers have been posted with the permission of the Plough
Publishing House of the Hutterian Foundation. The come from pages 816-821
of The Chronicle of the Hutterian Brethren. A Gazetteer is being created
for each map, since none exists in that book.

a particulary visually exciting map but it does give us some idea of the
borders at that time.
