The maps are clear and easy to read. Comparison to the current county bounday is made for each census year. Non-populated counties are noted.
I highly recommend this book for genealogists and anyone interested in the history or development of the USA or a particular state or county.
The book's premise is simple. It presents, in chronological order, maps of county borders by state, for each U.S. census year. The maps are clear, concise, and absolutely accurate. Notations of county formation dates and other significant events are icing on the cake.
Not sure if great-great-uncle's farm was in Houston or Crawford county in 1860? Wondering if Youngtown fell in different counties during different years? Look no further. Any serious genealogist or social historian with an interest in 1800's North America will find themselves refering to this book again and again.
