A survey of both online and physical map repositories located in the Washington, DC, area is presented in this webinar. The holdings of the Library of Congress, both digital and the 6 million maps onsite in the Madison Building, are illustrated in a genealogical context. Viewers learn how to access maps online or access and obtain copies of the myriad maps not available online, at repositories such as the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Society of the Cincinnati, the Bureau of Land Management, and more.
