Understanding the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps (Videos)

728x90



By Michael S Sheaffer

Since I posted about the Sanborn Maps on Friday (The Value of the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps), I have had quite the reaction to them. Many people have heard of them but have never used them in their research. I myself just recently used them with great success in my own research. Rather than use a lengthy post trying to explain the Sanborn Maps in detail,  I have found three Youtube videos which explain in greater depth and in much greater detail than I could do so. Hope you Enjoy!

These videos will discuss

1 The story of  the Sanborn Mapping Company

2  Learn how to use the Sanborn Maps

3  Show how to use the Sanborn Maps with your ancestry research
