|MICHIGAN MAP SELECTIONS|
I Have Several Michigan Map Projects That I Am Working On and Will Be Listed Soon...
was originally printed and copy written in 1895 by the Rand McNally Corporation, called
"The New 11 x 14 Atlas of the World". Although it contained maps of the
countries of the world and the individual states of the United States at that time, it
only contained an index for the United States. I have begun to scan the world maps
which will eventually be placed as a link on the atlas. There are no indexes for
the towns in the world portion, but perhaps the maps will help people.
If you are looking for a lost town shown on an old document, check this out to find all sorts of valuable information regarding your city or village.
Besides the data, I have also uploaded the actual maps from the Rand McNally 1895 Atlas of all of the states at that time and the District of Columbia for your research. I have re-enhanced the county sized maps since many visitors had difficulties downloading such large images as the state sized pieces. Also I have recently resized all of the maps of this atlas so they now load 90% or more faster in most cases.
Just interested in the research data and what
the population was, if there was a post office, whether the railroad stopped there, what
county was the town in, etc. for Michigan
towns? or just the 1895 state map of
Michigan?.....maybe you only need the individual state of Michigan
that are listed alphabetically for the in 1895. These are easier to
download than the entire state map which is a large jpg image.
Or, just want to see what Livingston County,
MI looked like in 1895?
1891 Grain Dealers and Shippers Gazetteer
A student asked me for information regarding Railroad maps for a school report. He needed something from the northeast to "any" plains state, so I put up all of the railroad route maps. The funny thing is that this book was purchased originally for my Livingston County MI site as it said only the Great Lakes states on the cover, and then I found tons of data in there for lots of places!
I have finally added all of the thousands and thousands of names and business owners that did business with the various railroads listed in the 1891 Shippers Gaz that I uploaded the R.R. maps from some time ago. Also check out the indexes I have created for each individual R.R. section. The spelling was terrible, so check the entire letter of a name you are researching, as some names are spelled 3 and 4 different ways.
I have recently resized all of the maps of this gazetteer & the ads too, so
they now load 90% or more faster in most cases.
