Citation for a Austro-Hungarian Cadastral Map

Hello! I am attempting to craft a citation to a portion of a Austro-Hungarian Cadastral map found here. Specifically, image 5 (skan: 7/9). I would appreciate feedback on the footnote that I've created.

I've reviewed Evidence Explained (latest version) and it would appear that section 11.30 Special Land Files: Survey Plat Maps would be applicable and in particular, example 3 of the first reference notes on page 591 (for online images).

Following is a first attempt at the citation:

Cadastral Map Nro. 153 (1854), Narol Stary mit der Ortschaft Zagrody in Galizien [Mapa wsi Narol Stary z miejscowością Zagrody w Galicji] [Map of the village of Narol Stary with the village of Zagroda in Galicia]; Archiwum Państwowe w Przemyślu [State Archive of Przemysl], images, Archiwum Geodezyjne [Geodetic Archives] (http://www.skany.przemysl.ap.gov.pl/show.php?zesp=126&cd=0&ser=0&syg=1111M : accessed 22 Feb 2017).

Questions:

1) While the "Nro. 153" doesn't appear directly at the link provide, it does appear on the cover of the cadastral map on skan: 2/9. Is it appropriate to include it?

2) Given the time period, I know this is a Stabile Cadastre map. However, that isn't explicitly stated anywhere on the website. I presume I should not include that information. Correct?

3) How would I fit in the reference to image 5 (skan: 7/9)?

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Chris,

Thanks for your patience in waiting for an answer while I was off toiling in other fields.  Your draft citation does a superb job of following Example 4 at 11.30 "Special Land Files: Survey Plat Maps: Online Images." Regarding your questions:

1. Yes. This is the same situation as Example 4.

2. Adding this would be helpful (both to you, at a later date after your recollection of this source has "gone cold," and to anyone who uses your work). Just start a new sentence after your citation sentence, and say what needs saying.

3. The reference to image 5 is essential, as you suspected. Simply add it after the URL, just as you would add a specific page number or image number to a book citation.

Hi Editor,

Thank you for response. Given that I wrote on a late Saturday afternoon on Mother's Day weekend, I wasn't expecting an immediate answer. :)

Glad to know that I'm on the right track! I hadn't thought to add a new sentence after the citation sense but that makes perfect sense.

Thanks again!

Chris

I like how ChrisFB crafted the citation. For comparison, I use similar records in the Netherlands, where I usually start my citation with the cadastral municipality that created the records. For example:

Cadastral municipality of Winterswijk, minuutplan [minute plan] section C sheet 4 (1832); "Beeldbank" [image bank], digital images, Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed [National Cultural Heritage Service] (http://beeldbank.cultureelerfgoed.nl : accessed 15 May 2017), image MIN05175C02. 

I include the "Cadastral municipality of" because there is also a civil municipality by the same name, which did not create this record.

Hi Yvette,

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I appreciate it.

Do your records clearly state the cadastral municipality? I do have an authoratative reference that identies the cadastral municipality but no where is that information to be found at the link I referenced above. I suppose that, in this situation, I could also include that information in the sentence following the citation sentence for additional clarity.

Yes, the legend of the map usually includes the name of the cadastral municipality that created it. When I am positive about the creator of the map, I like to include it in my citations. But when in doubt, I leave it out.
