The problem is that Robertsau is a remote district, outside the city walls (as you can see here : https://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/btv1b102248689/f1.item.zoom) . It's not featured on most historical (detailed) maps of Strasbourg.abertha Escreveu: ↑07 julho 2019, 23:51Friends, thank you for the rich responses! You have given me plenty to dig into. My specific question may not have an accessible answer, but here are the details. In 1817, my ancestors appear to have lived at house #79 Robertsau. When I was doing research in the Spis region of Slovakia, I was sometimes able to find cadastral maps that showed who owned each plot of land and how it was numbered in a specific year. I have noted that today's Allee de Robertsau, and the whole district north of the city center, was developed on a grand scale in the 1870's, when the Germans took control. But along some main streets of the old Robertsau district (Rue de Boecklin and Rue le Chevalier Robert, I believe?), there seem to be some houses that might be 18th century or earlier. I like to go to places my people were--even if the "place" isn't really there any more due to redevelopment. Hence my desire for a map that might show where house #79 stood in 1817. I lucked out in Slovakia and found some properties occupied by my family--any chance I could have similar luck here?
The picture below is a comparison of the district. On the left side, you have the military map (1820-1846). House number 79 could be anywhere. I'm affraid you'll have to visit the municipal archives and check the napoleonic cadastral map (around 1837).
