Each photographed map is high resolution and is zoomable. This means one can click on a map and view close-ups of homes, land owners' names, streets, roads, railroads, businesses and industries. The features of each map are detailed above.

     Each also provides a fascinating look at Warsaw including its farms and histories of flourishing farms. The included 1902 and 1928 Sanborn maps were created "back in the day" for assessing fire insurance in urbanized and rural areas in the United States. They include detailed information regarding town and village building information.

     The maps are great for genealogy research! You can find an ancestor or a house, business, person and take a snapshot from each map and then print all the snapshots for comparisons. Or, of course, you can visually see how a place or thing has changed over time.

    The original paper maps are for the most part very large and hand-colored. High resolution cameras were used to photograph the maps so that you can zoom in and move around to locate a wanted view.

You may click on the two links below to see samples. Don't forget to click zoom to enlarge the maps. Once you see the map enlarged, you can scroll the map.
