This presentation will describe how maps in the collections of The New York Public Library and elsewhere can be used in genealogical research. We’ll look at fire insurance maps and atlases, military and topographical maps, county maps and atlases, and other types of maps to locate records, discover where our ancestors lived, and what their lives were like.
