I don't know whether this is a trait I share with other genealogists, but I love maps! I like to take my old worn-out Rand McNally atlas of the United States and look at the maps. I enjoy finding all the little towns with strange names (strange to me, but probably made sense to someone!). Today I came across the BIG Map Blog - lots of great historical maps - I especially liked the Auto Club's map of Los Angeles and environs circa 1915. Check it out here!
