The gazetteer – “Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i innych krajów słowiańskich ”- was published between 1880 and 1902 under the direction of Filip Sulimierski. The title can be roughly translated as “The Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavic Countries ”. It is an excellent gazetteer for locating places in the areas of Poland, both present and past. Coverage includes all localities in the former Polish provinces of Russia, most localities in the former Austrian province of Galicia (now divided between Poland and the Ukraine), Belarusian provinces of the Russian Empire (now in the Republic of Belarus), and also contains significant localities in other Slavic and eastern European nations. The dictionary is written in Polish and comes in 15 volumes of almost 1000 pages each.
