Maps, Glorious Maps

I've been looking for an online copy of a map of the early Salt Lake City wards, so I was interested to read my father's post yesterday on his genealogy blog (Update of Maps Online). 

I didn't find the map I was looking for, but what marvelous resources he lists! The most useful one I've seen so far is the David Rumsey Map Collection which includes the MapRank Search.

I enjoyed this map of Rhode Island, since I visited the state recently. (Very briefly!)

For other map resources, see the post at Genealogy's Star (Update of Maps Online).


  1. Did you ever find the map you were looking for?

  2. No. I have a lead that there may be one in Andrew Jenson's Encyclopedic History of the Church, but the only copy I can see online is on the BYU library website but it's not downloadable and the website so clunky it's almost useless.

    You don't happen to have a map, do you??
