This map was made and brought from Russia by Guillermo S. Edelberg's grandfather, when he emigrated to Argentina. Guillermo found it in a box and he sent a copy to his cousin in the USA, Sarah Christiansen.

The map is hand-drawn and hand-written in old Russian. Although it was enlarged twice it is often difficult or impossible to read. Several translators contributed three different versions which are listed below. The numbers (# column) refer to the locations in the map.

If you need additional information regarding this map, please contact Sarah Lee Meyer Christiansen or Dmitry Abramson. Please search JewishGen Family Finder database to connect with others researching L'vove.
