USA Indian Land Cessions 1784 - 1894: free maps

This is a really great website for any of us with US interests. It's another one of those sites that can really put 'meat on the bones'. I have family who lived in various parts of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and North Dakota [so far] from the early 1600's to the present day. I'll continue poking through these maps, and learning so much more about what life may have been like for them through geography. Often maps let us make sense of some of the decisions our ancestors made. Thanks to the Library of Congress American Memory Project for the awesome work they are doing! http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/amlaw/lwss-ilc.html

I LOVE maps!!
