Created to provide insurance agents information concerning the areas for which they would offer fire insurance coverage, the Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps are a valuable resource for historians and genealogists who wish to learn about the neighborhoods in which their ancestors lived and conducted business. Many maps have been digitized and are online at free websites, but finding these resources can be challenging. This session will demonstrate what the Sanborn maps can provide and techniques for locating them.
