Important note

There is a cadastral map* of Żółkiewka consisting of 8 parts.
The map was drawn in 1967 from a map drawn in 1938, and shows all buildings in the towns, their "footprints" and the names of the people who owned them.

So far, all attempts to contact the municipality and the Regional Żółkiewka Society of Friends (headed by Mr. Bohdan Kiełbasa) regarding this were unsuccessful.
If anyone has any idea or contact information, please contact me.


* A cadastral map is a map which provides detailed information about real property within a specific area.
A simple example of a cadastral map might be a map of a village which shows the boundaries of all of the parcels or lots within the village, although cadastral maps can show other types of areas as well.
