Early Western New York Maps

Tim Stowell on the NYDUTCHE (Dutchess County NY) mailing list posted a message with the following link:


under which is the Holland Land Company Maps at the State University of New York (SUNY Fredonia).These maps are mainly about New York state and western New York at that - from Herkimer west, but also contain early maps from Pennsylvania to Maine to Georgia and points in between."

This is a wonderful map site with many maps that I haven't seen before for much of upstate and western New York. I hoped to find a map that shows the lots for the Jellis Fonda Patent in Oneida County (mentioned yesterday in my recent Russell Smith search post), but didn't see one.

My thanks to Tim for the timely mailing list post! Isn't it great when something like this happens, almost genea-gasmic!
