1914 U.S. County Maps by State

Janie Edwards found, rescued, scanned and is now sharing this amazing book.  If you are like me, you want to see where your ancestors lived, on a map. In fact, while looking at this web site, I discovered that the village of Corinth, Maine is south of South Corinth. I thought I knew the area well but this was news to me. (My great-great-grandfather lived in Corinth.)

The dates of the individual maps vary from 1910 to 1914. You can see this excellent resource at: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~shastaca/maps_index.html.
