The following is an announcement from Art Lassagne of GoldBug. It describes an interesting new and free service:
Introducing SiteFinder Online, a free web-based version of The Gold Bug's SiteFinder U.S. place name database. SiteFinder Online lets you search for towns, cemeteries, schools, courthouses (and more) and plot them onto Google Maps, where you can zoom in & out or overlay the SiteFinder locations onto satellite images of areas you are studying.
You can plot multiple items at once or search for your exact point of interest. In addition to the more than 700,000 current locations, there are thousands of historical locations that no longer exist and won't be found on current maps.
The database contains all the locations contained in the version included with the AniMap County Boundary Historical Atlas software. The search capabilities are a little more limited, but are quite sufficient for SiteFinder. You can access this free service at http://www.goldbug.com/map/sitefinder.html.
Some web browsing software may not support Google Maps. For information on this, you can go to http://www.maps.google.com.
