Greek Government Map 1944 with Macedonian Names

Mapping Migration in Kastoria, Macedonia What

This is an interesting site with a good map of Kasotria and Grevena complements of University of Oxford Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford, Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College London and The Research Centre for Macedonian History and Documentation, Thessaloniki.

Obviously it is concerned with Greeks, but infomation on Macedonians may teased from the site.

The it is a Greek Government map with English alphabet. As you can see, most of the names have been changed, but what surprised me was the amount of Macedonian names still left on the Greek map. See Florina Map - Bela Voda (56:60), Golema Glava (74:60) etc

Below is an explanation of its members.

"Mapping Migration is constructing a Geographical Information System (GIS) and web-site focussing on the forced migration of people from 1880 to the present day in the geographical region of Macedonia now known as the district of Kastoria, Greece."
