The map below(right) shows farms in the Alstaette Germany area as they were in 1842. This reprint was published 1995. The original is in the "Staatsbibliothek (state library) in Berlin". This card was drawn by a Prussian officer by hand and illustrated the exact cartographic location of  "Münsterland" in 1842. Thank you to Karl Shulte for scanning the reprint and sending it to us.
