|This is Google Earth/David Rumsey layer map from 1733: "The first large scale map of North America and the most accurate at the time. It shows the extent of the British, French, and Spanish colonial possessions." I might take a little tour tonight and see what this old lens on the world might show me about my ancestors back then. Google Earth Pro offers a few of these layers, you can go to the David Rumsey site and find more maps to overlay on Google Earth.|
Ancestry Blog had this nice tidbit today from Pamela Boyer Sayre and Rick Sayre about a few great sources they use for historical maps, and you know I love maps!
Edited to add: I am disappointed that the mapping function on the University of Virginia Census Browser that they recommended isn't working. Is it just me?
