List of Maps Created By the Emmitsburg Historical Society

Well we are 2/3rds of the way through our goal of identifying all the landholders since the original royal land grants.  Using public records and land transfer deeds, we have produced maps showing the changes of land ownership for the entire region in ten year increments, beginning in 1754.

It is our fervent hope, that family names identified during this research will trigger input from genealogist and family history buffs from across the country.  Our land transfer information is just a skeleton outline of our history, we're depending on visitors like you to add the 'meat to the bones'.  

Below is a list of the maps, and links to them, we have created to date. The maps are formatted for views in a computer browser, but are not suitable for printing. If you would like a higher resolution version of any of the map below suitable for printing and framing, please click on the link below.
