2013 Week # 9

Genealogy Tips, Week # 9

This is a very interesting link to "Lantmäteriet".

Here you can see the old Historical Maps
Begin by selecting a county from the dropdown list and then zoom in to your chosen area. View a list of Historical Maps for the area you have selected by clicking on Search.

Get started
DjVu - Plugin required for viewing Historical Maps
The high resolution digital images which are created when the maps are scanned are too large to be shown or downloaded from the Internet in their original format.
In order to view the historical maps the Djvu browser plug-in (new window) must first be installed on your computer. The plug in only needs to be installed on your computer once and may be downloaded free of charge
