Post subject: House numbers in 19th century records vs house numbers today
Does anyone know how houses were numbered in 19th century Poland? Were they numbered according to order of construction, i.e. the first house built in a village being called #1, the 2nd house #2, etc.? Or was house #1 the first house seen upon entering a village? Or as most houses are numbered now, according to the order of houses on a designated street?
And were there never more than one house #5's in a single village back then? And when might they have changed to a more modern numbering system? Compared to nowadays where they might have several house #5's in a village, depending upon which street they're on?
