TopoQuest

leave a comment »

This is a free resource.  It is similar to the old TopoZone which went commercial and I don’t have a problem with that. However I am cheap  frugal.

Leave all the settings at “default” except scroll down to “map size” and choose “grande”.

Go to “find places” and choose your area to investigate.  Google Maps is great but don’t try to find a River or Pocosin… ain’t happening.

These are USGS maps that we paid for with tax dollars so there is no copyright issues… yet.

I have several of these maps sprinkled thru my Pages and you may want to see what is underneath with a clean “base map”.  These

maps also show old cemeteries sprinkled around.

When you get really desperate to find info you can use a whole smorgasborg of maps…   https://andersonnc.wordpress.com/george-anderson-b-1756-edgecombe-property/
