Map – Oldřiš and Borová houses and churches

Above is a current map, showing the churches and Teply houses in Oldřiš and Borová. Each house on the map has a house number.

In the 1820s, the Habsburg’s directed that their empire be mapped. Detailed maps were made, and by 1839 the maps for east Bohemia were published.

Each house was shown and numbered. Each field and garden was indicated. Many fields displayed the farmer’s name. The maps were hand painted. Here’s an example of those maps showing the Teply houses and farms in Oldřiš and Borová.

Today these maps are digitized and online – a genealogist’s dream. They are “Original maps of the stable cadastre in the Archive maps”. You can find them at .
