1852 Map Sketches of Wola Piotrowa

Available here are four connected map sketches of Wola Piotrowa in 1852 that one can print and assemble into a single large map which shows about half of the village. This map contains house numbers that correspond to the numbers one can find in standard church records.

Dziękuje bardzo to Jurek Ćwiąkała for sharing these maps with us.

The maps are scanned at very fine detail which means the high quality map files are pretty big.

About Printing

You can print these on your home printer but you'll use a lot of ink and might not find the result very satisfying. I recommend that you take the high-quality map files to your local print shop and ask them to print the maps for you. You might want to print this page and bring it along with you.

Printed at 600dpi (very good quality), each sheet will be about 12" x 12" (30 x 30cm) or 12" x 8" (30 x 20cm) – they're not all the same size. You can also print them on a letter-sized sheet of paper, but you'll need a magnifying glass to read the result. The best size to use depends on your budget, what your print shop can provide and what you plan to do with the maps.

Connecting the Maps

Once you have printed the individual maps, the diagram below shows how to arrange them.
