5.0 out of 5 stars How did I ever do without it?, January 2, 2004
This review is from: Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses, 1790-1920 (Paperback)
There are very few reference books a genealogist really needs to own - most just end up collecting dust. This, however, is a rare gem.
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.
