This month it is my pleasure to bestow the GenExchange's
Genealogical Web Site of Excellence award to The Combination Atlas map of
Dauphin Co PA. This site was created by Robert Maley - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Robert Maley has put a lot of time into this wonderful
site. He has taken The Combination Atlas Map of Dauphin County,
Pennsylvania. Compiled, Drawn and Published From Personal Examinations and
Surveys By Everts & Stewart Philadelphia 1875 and put it online for
everyone to use. All of the township maps are clickable to make them
larger and are all quite readable. There is an index to the maps that is
also searchable. He is in the process of adding those
wonderful etchings of buildings and homes that appeared in atlases of
this time period. There is a section called "found
here" where people who have found there
ancestors can post there findings so others can contact them.
All and all a wonderful site of great benefit to PA researchers.
We select our monthly award from those which our
newsletter readers and visitors to our GenExchange
