American Memory Collection at the Library of Congress

We don't normally include websites at "Genealogy tip of the Day," but this one is free and really too good for the genealogist to pass up.

The American Memory Collection at the Library of Congress (http://memory.loc.gov) has scans of maps, religious petitions, early eighteenth century books on immigration, and much much more. Take a look for yourself.

And if you didn't see any railroad maps on the site, there are here: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/gmdhtml/rrhtml/rrhome.html
