Mappy Monday: Connecticut Historical Maps Mash-Up

   I just stumbled across a fantastic new feature on the UConn website. Connecticut Historical Maps Mash-Up allows you to enter a modern address and use that address to search a variety of historic maps, dating back to 1766. It has some definite limitations - some years are only available for one city - but it's a fun way to explore what your ancestor's home would have looked like at different points. I searched one ancestor's address. Prior to 1800, there was nothing there!
