You can find it for example here:

But of course it is not a "map of Poland", becouse there was no Poland at that time...

Regards

plk123:
kingdom of warsaw

You mean Duchy of Warsaw, which existed for 8 years between 1807 and 1815?

Isn't there a map somewhere on the net shwoing pre-partition Poland with the three partitions superimposed thereon in different colours showing the Russian, Prussian and Austrian partitions?

Fine, but what kind of Gatesian meanders must be followed to actually see the map rather than just that funny little coloured box at upper right? Couldn't you have done the required clickery and gadgetry at your end so the map would immediately show up?

Thank you very much for the interesting map. I am really trying to find a family in med 1800s that were from a long long of counts and countesses. The trouble is where exactly did they live? Since the countess lived in the mid 1850s giving birth to the one I seek in 1886. I want to go to Warsaw in June and see if I can find the name. But the place is going to be a big challenge since the country kept changing.
Thanks so much again. Do you know if I will be able to search in english? When I go there?

not a chance... and if your peeps were not from Warsaw then you're wasting your time looking there.. you need to go to the parish they were from and try there.. good luck.

I don't know if you are talking about the map I posted but as mine is the only map with red, I think it is me.
And to answer: I have no idea what you are talking about, I just posted a youtube link that I thought is interesting.

Lukasz K.....Thank you for posting the historic map of Poland. My nephew and I are researching my grandmother (his great-grandmother) who left Poland in 1914 to come to the United States and settle in Chicago. There is very little of her history that was left for us. We do know she came from Lipnik which at the time of her emigration was in Austria-Hungary.

Your map let us know that our ancestors were from what looks to be the Tatra Mountains. Thank you for this link to our heritage....
