Arphax Publishing Company publishes HistoryGeo.com, a family history web service for linking old maps and land records to your genealogy research. Arphax probably is best known for providing online versions of the Family Maps and Texas Land Survey Maps book series, but that perception has changed since the release of the company’s First Landowners Project.
The company recently announced the addition of 3.3 million original landowners to the HistoryGeo.com “First Landowners Project,” for Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming.
Instead of looking at landowner maps township by township, HistoryGeo.com allows the user to view a single, interactive map containing over 12.3 million landowners and 2.25 million lots among 30 states (all 29 of the public land states in the Continental U.S., plus Texas). Imagine constantly expanded map coverage, and having the ability to keep track of all the early homesteaders you’re researching.
The Antique Maps Collection is a fully indexed collection of hundreds of thousands of landowners from a constantly expanding collection of nearly 4,000 maps from various sources and time periods. All you need to access this content is a HistoryGeo.com subscription.
