The Old Maps team will be at the NERGC conference in Manchester NH next week. Thursday-Saturday, April 3-5. We will have 2 booths filled with historical maps for genealogists.
Maps with homeowner names are the most popular. We have 1800s detailed maps for every town in New England.
The 1850s county wall maps – the oldest such maps for rural towns have all been scanned and put onto CDROMS for easy access. We also have large reprints for several county maps.
These examples are Strafford County NH.

We also have colonial maps with early town boundaries, state maps showing the oldest roads, and unusual map collections like Lotting Plans, Topographic maps, and nautical charts.
Maps are fun!
