Mappy Monday: Minnesota Maps Online
It's Monday - so it's back to one of my obsessions, historic maps. The Minnesota Historical Society has made a great resource available to map buffs. Called Minnesota Maps Online, their database allows you to view digital images of survey maps and plat books. The variety of sources for Elba is somewhat limited, but it's a great starting point for discovering more about how your ancestors lived. For more context, you can visit other websites, such as the University of Texas Libraries or The Minnesota Geospatial Information Office (you can even create your own map!).
