Listers,

For those interested in historical maps, I stumbled across this (link
below) David Rumsey site today and found it very interesting.

The David Rumsey
<http://www.technologyreview.com/read_article.aspx?id=14588&ch=infotech>;
Historical Map Collection has over 15,800 maps online. The collection
focuses on rare 18th and 19th century North and South America maps and
other cartographic materials. Historic maps of the World, Europe, Asia
and Africa are also represented. Collection categories include antique
atlas <http://www.davidrumsey.com/atlases.html>;, globe, school
geography, maritime chart, state, county, city, pocket, wall, childrens
and manuscript maps. The collection can be used to study history,
genealogy and family history.
