Historical Atlases

We have images of old american atlases during the years 1750 to 1900. These are scanned from the original copies so you can see the states and counties as our ancestors saw them over a hundred years ago. Some maps years (not all) have cities, railroads, P.O. locations, township outlines and other features useful to the avid genealogist in North America. Images are between 500k and 6 meg so allow a few moments to load if you are using a dial-up connection.

Disclaimer: All maps are free to use for your own genealogical purposes and may not be reproduced for resale or distribution. Source: David Rumsey Historical Map Collection
