Old Maps on New Website

Old Maps on New WebsiteOld maps from places such as the British Library, the National Library of Scotland and many overseas archives are now available online thanks to a joint venture between the University of Portsmouth and JISC.

More archives & libraries have signed up to allow their collections to be put online in the months to come so this is a site which need to be bookmarked as a favourite and returned to on a regular basis.

The graphics come through very clearly and also on a side bar is some interesting information about the map. Maps add so much to a family history that I am sure we will all join in congratulating the University of Portsmouth in offering such a wonderful site.
