Nowhere. Such a map of Poland in the 1880's do not exist. :-)

You can find it for example here:

map old poland

But of course it is not a "map of Poland", becouse there was no Poland at that time...

Isn't there a map somewhere on the net shwoing pre-partition Poland with the three partitions superimposed thereon in different colours showing the Russian, Prussian and Austrian partitions?

Fine, but what kind of Gatesian meanders must be followed to actually see the map rather than just that funny little coloured box at upper right? Couldn't you have done the required clickery and gadgetry at your end so the map would immediately show up?

Thank you very much for the interesting map. I am really trying to find a family in med 1800s that were from a long long of counts and countesses. The trouble is where exactly did they live? Since the countess lived in the mid 1850s giving birth to the one I seek in 1886. I want to go to Warsaw in June and see if I can find the name. But the place is going to be a big challenge since the country kept changing.

Thanks so much again. Do you know if I will be able to search in english? When I go there?

not a chance... and if your peeps were not from Warsaw then you're wasting your time looking there.. you need to go to the parish they were from and try there.. good luck.

I don't know if you are talking about the map I posted but as mine is the only map with red, I think it is me.

And to answer: I have no idea what you are talking about, I just posted a youtube link that I thought is interesting.

Lukasz K.....Thank you for posting the historic map of Poland. My nephew and I are researching my grandmother (his great-grandmother) who left Poland in 1914 to come to the United States and settle in Chicago. There is very little of her history that was left for us. We do know she came from Lipnik which at the time of her emigration was in Austria-Hungary.

Your map let us know that our ancestors were from what looks to be the Tatra Mountains. Thank you for this link to our heritage....

My grandfather wrote on his US Draft Registration card that he was born in Turly, Poland in 1882. It may have been near Warsaw or Vilna. (I don't know which Polish-born grandparent came from which area.) Sometimes he wrote he was from Russia-Poland. Does anyone know where that is or was?

The name is Tur³y. The town lies on the east from Vilna, but on Belarus area, not in Lithuania. It was Poland at the time. Check the google map.

Look at these photos of the Polish Kotwicz Family Court in Tur³y, (from 1939 and now)

It wasn't Poland at that time (1880). The nearest to the description of "Poland" was the 'Kingdom of Poland' which was formally in unity with Russia, but its autonomy was scraped long before that time. Nevertheless, the tsars of Russia retained the title of King of Poland until the collapse of the House of Romanov on the Russian throne.

Diendufka

No such place in Poland. Probably misspelled. The guessing will be hard without any written source available.
A long shot - maybe Bieńkówka?
'uf' and 'ów' is almost identical in Polish pronunciation.

I am trying to find information about the Town of Grupa in Poland during the 1880s. I have ascertained that my grandmother and family came from this town but I cannot find any information about it --- I do not see it on any map nor when I do an internet search nothing comes up with that name. Can someone help me with this??? Thank you in advance.

I can only find a village, not a town with this name:-

Grupa

In the 1880's, the village was part of the German Empire. Try either "Ober Gruppe" (Polish name: Górna Grupa) or "Nieder Gruppe" (Dolna Grupa).

Seeking Jewish family ancestry from Poland. c. 1886 > Joseph Greenberg /Grynberg /Gruenberg? was born 01/01/1887 - died in October of 1952 in San Francisco, California. Family name may have been changed?

Family said to have lived in/or near Warsaw.
Joseph came to the US before WW2 and lost touch with family in Poland.
He married in the US --Mitzi / Mary John ( Catholic) from Czechoslovakia .
His Granddaughter Kathy is seeking to find what happened to Joseph's family.
We have no names of his parents.
A sister is said to have accompanied him to the US but no name is known for her.
It's thought they probably perished in the Holocaust.
I have looked at Yad Vashem but not knowing names doesn't help !
Thanks for any help anyone may have.

Google for "Joseph Grünberg" and "Warschau". Quite a few hits.

A lovely story. If you have any birth certificates, death certificates etc from the twentieth century, you might contact the Gmina Zydowska in Warsaw who help people to trace their family history.

Often families develop very romantic stories that become more and more romanticised in the retelling however are based on a (sometimes more prosaic) grain of truth. It would be wonderful if you could get to the bottom of the story.
