Browse Panoramic Maps by State

When doing Genealogy Research we know that maps are an invaluable resource in locating where our ancestors lived or worked.  While many libraries, archives, and historical societies hold these treasures,  often times to use them one has to visit those locations. However, the Library of Congress has a collection of Panoramic Maps on their website that have been digitized, searchable by state and you can do from home.

Genealogy News: New Map of Canton in Genealogy

New Map of Canton in Genealogy

By Lauren Landis The Genealogy Department welcomed a new piece of Canton History last week. An aerial-view lithograph of Canton in 1884, entitled “The Panoramic View of The City of Canton, Ohio” is now on display.  The map is a replica of the original, which is held at the McKinley Museum. With the generosity of the Museum and financial support from the FOL, the map was duplicated, framed, and hung on the 2nd floor of the Main Library. Stop by to take a look, and see if you can find the site of the present-day Library and other Canton landmarks.

 

Until next week: Happy Ancestor Hunting!
