Cadastre Land Records

 

ZVA has acquired copies of many cadastre records for the villages of Zichydorf, Györgyháza, Setschanfeld, Gross Gaj, Ürményháza, and Heideschütz for various years. These are records of property ownership compiled for tax collecting. They really do not have any genealogical value, but they can be very interesting if you are trying to learn more about your family's circumstances in the Heimat. The following definitions from Wikipedia will help to understand these records.

A cadastre (also spelled cadaster), using a cadastral survey or cadastral map, is a comprehensive register of the metes-and-bounds real property of a country.

Metes and bounds is a system or method of describing land. Typically the system uses physical features of the local geography, along with directions and distances, to define and describe the boundaries of a parcel of land. The boundaries are described in a running prose style, working around the parcel in sequence, from a point of beginning, returning back to the same point. It may include references to other adjoining parcels (and their owners), and it, in turn, could also be referred to in later surveys. At the time the description is compiled, it may have been marked on the ground with permanent monuments placed where there were no suitable natural monuments.

Our records contain lists of landowners with the numbered parcels they owned along with (in most cases) maps showing the locations of the individual plots. We only ordered the lists and maps we thought were most likely to be wanted, but we may be able to obtain data and maps of other municipalities if you are interested. Please inquire.

We found that some of the very large files caused difficulties for older computers, so we split large files into two or more volumes. For one Zichydorf file for 1875 there are three different options. In one option, all the information is contained in one PDF file. In the other two options, the information is split into three or six files. Take your pick or download them all.

Below is a list of the files and folders contained in this package.

Bioseg was an estate with a single owner. The residents were all tenants on the estate. Thus, the only name on the first two lists is the estate owner, M. K. Kincstár.
