Przybyszów (Prybyshiv, Прибишів) Residents before 1946

This is a list of resdients in Przybyszów, Poland taken from a map kindly shared with us by BT member Theresa T. The map is presumably from the early 1940s, although the heading is cropped so we can't be 100% sure.

Many BT members helped with transliterating names, translating words and puzzling out the mysteries in the maps.

The map is shown on two pages representing the northern and southern halves of the village. They're explained individually below.

Southern Half

The names of the people mentioned on this map are listed below

The southern half of the map contains the partial heading "before the 1946 burning". I've added translations (in green) directly to the map. Don't take the word "mountain" too seriously; it probably means more like "large hill". The arrows indicate the direction that the water flows.

Please note that the map is oriented the opposite direction of most maps; the top of the map is south and the bottom is north.

Northern Half

The names of the people mentioned on this map are listed below

The northern half of the map continues where the southern left off.

As with the other map, this one is oriented the opposite direction of most maps with south at the top and north at the bottom.

The word "Пилорама" (Pilorama) associated with the sawmill is probably just a business name.

One of the names in this list (Ніneць) seems to have a letter from the Latin alphabet ("N") in the 3rd position. There's no such letter in Ukrainian/Rusyn Cyrillic.

You might want to compare these maps with some other maps of the same area.

This map showing Przybyszów, Karlików Płonna and Rzepedż is from an 1877 Austro-Hungarian map at 1:75000 scale. (The source map is Lisko und Mezö Laborc.) It shows the location of the church and some elevation information which is what helped me to figure out the orientation of the maps described above.

This map showing only Przybyszów is from a 1938 Polish map at 1:100 000 scale. (The source map is P51 S34 LESKO.) The two mills are portrayed on this map as six-pointed stars; there's one right next to the church.
