I posted earlier about the 1880 Hungarian Hátsek Ignácz atlas online. Janos Bogardi of Radixlog has suggested several more online historical map resources for Hungary. They are:
- County maps from the Pallas lexicon
- Gönczy maps, early 1900s
- Görög maps, early 1800s
- 1800 Atlas Regni Hungariae
Here's one more of interest that I have used to learn more about my Hungarian ancestors' homeland: Counties of the Hungarian Kingdom (1913)These are wonderful windows into the world of my ancestors who lived in the Austro-Hungarian empire.
Interested in maps for other parts of the world? Check out these two great sites:
- The Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection (or more specifically, the historical maps in their collection)
- The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection (which focuses primarily on cartography of the Americas from the 18th and 19th centuries, but also has maps of the World, Asia, Africa, Europe, and Oceania).
Be warned - you can lose track of time as you get lost traveling the world at these sites.
Can't find what you're looking for at the above? Check out the Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection's veritable library of links to other general map sites or historical map sites.
So many maps - so many windows into the world of my ancestors.
Now if only I could learn to pronounce all the names of their various towns and counties!
