Arkansas Historical Maps and Atlases
The state of Arkansas collection contains 39 atlases spanning 146 years of growth and development (1854 through 2000). Within the atlases are 2,310 historical maps, illustrations, and histories many of which contain family names ideal for genealogical research. Others are rare antique maps, part of the collection by an exclusive arrangement with the Osher Map Library. The state of Arkansas has 8 of these antiquarian maps dating back as early as 1854.
This site might be of interest to my genealogy seeking sisters, me I am too old to explore the possibilities but Betty and Fleta will find something here they want.
so click on my title and explore.
