County and Regional Histories & Atlases

Originally compiled and produced by publishers and subscriptions agents for area residents and patrons, the original histories are difficult-to-find materials. These titles include tables and lists of vital statistics, military service records, municipal and county officers, chronologies, portraits of individuals, and views of urban and rural life not found anywhere else. The atlases provide additional information on land use and settlement patterns and scarce early town and city plans in California, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

County and Regional Histories & Atlases (Archives Unbound) is available on Android and iOS.
