Using Maps in Genealogy
We have repeatedly been encouraged to use maps in our genealogical research. Well the USGS has a website, Using Maps in Genealogy, that further addresses this encouragement.
The website (http://erg.usgs.gov/isb/pubs/factsheets/fs09902.html) was last updated in 2006 and contains many useful links.
In Florida, the USGS maps are available free for download at the LABINS - Land Boundary Information System website (http://data.labins.org/2003/index.cfm).
If you know where to find free USGS maps for other States, please share your information as a quick comment.
