FamilySearch Wiki ~ United States Maps

Genealogists constantly look for maps to help them find the locations associated with their ancestors.  We have a selection of bookmarks that offer some good selections but rarely do we have a full complement of map site links and detailed map information.

Researchers focusing on the United States only need one map related link – The United States Maps article on the FamilySearch Wiki.

Let’s look at just a few of the features in the article:

usmaps

 

usmaps_geological

 

usmaps_atlases

 

usmaps_state_county

 

The article continues on to discuss many other types of maps ranging from Fire Insurance to land ownership, military, slavery and topography.

Bookmark this article.  It doesn’t matter if you think you already have enough maps bookmarks; bookmark this one.

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
