Journey to the big city! This book will guide you through American history by looking at the United States' sixteen most populous and historically important cities, such as New York, Chicago, Boston, New Orleans and Baltimore. Each section features beautiful, full-color maps of a major American city, tracing the city's growth and development from the city's founding to the early 1900s so you can see your ancestors' city as they would have seen it. Use the maps to trace your ancestor's walk to work, or to identify the streets and buildings from your ancestor's everyday life. For even more research value, each section has a quick-reference timeline with key dates from that city's history (including those that affect genealogy record availability), plus information about valuable resources for the area such as gaps in census coverage and when and where city directories are available.

Whether your family hails from the streets of Brooklyn or the hills of San Francisco, this atlas—specifically designed for genealogists—will help you better understand your city-dwelling ancestors.
