Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps

At Wednesday night’s SGS meeting presentation, Kevin Mittge mentioned the online Sanborn Fire Insurance maps which provides a wealth of information, accessible with a searchable database (by state and city).  Member Merilee Mulvey shares a link to a recent article from Lisa Louise Cooke’s Genealogy Gems.  Read the article HERE and locate your ancestor’s neighborhood! 

Merilee also reports “there is a direct link to the Library of Congress section dealing specifically with the fire insurance maps. Members might like being able to go directly to the actual pages where the maps are explained and how to access them.”  Click HERESUMMER PICNIC POTLUCK – AUG. 16th, 4:30 p.m. Elks RV Park (Mercer Lake Road)
