Real Puzzle

Did you ever wondered why we call our research “puzzle solving” ?

Look at those pictures. It is the same Galician village, part of Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918, now in Ukraine, mapped in 1848 and in 1878. We are looking for a couple of particular house numbers. Does it look like a puzzle??

And why house number? In this part of the world (Galizia), unlike almost any other Ukrainian locations, all records of birth, marriage and death were accompanied with the house number. And using this number you can easily get all the family members living at the same household. And then find the place on the modern map, and then go and visit the place in person. So the map below is the key to the location. We have to solve it.
