(My apologies: I seem to have used "fascinating" too often on this page. It's very easy for me to get enthusiastic about something new!)

As of Sept. 2009, Google Translate can render many of the Polish-language sites usable for the English-only viewer.

The original was posted to the JewishGen Digest on 8 April 2012. This version is used with his permission:
'[Mapywig is] an excellent resource for old maps and town plans, mainly from central and eastern Europe. It is hosted by "Archiwum Map Wojskowego Instytuto Geograficznego [WIG] 1919-1939", known in short as the "Mapywig" project: http://english.mapywig.org/news.php. Their site contains a large collection of topographical maps owned by WIG - from Poland and neighboring countries (Lithuania, Germany, the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia) between the two world wars.

They also display many other scanned maps, not owned by WIG, from Austria-Hungary, Russia and the Soviet Union, Germany, and other parts of central Europe, from the early 19th century onwards.

A remarkable part of their online collection is their set of digital town street plans (with scales ranging between 1:7500 and 1:25000), largely from the period 1900-1945. They can be accessed at: http://english.mapywig.org/viewpage.php?page_id=3D33.'
