tennessee county formation maps for census work
tennessee county formation maps and formation information - helpful for census and migration use - can be found as ani-maps online | here |
with the map on this page, you can follow a county year to year with three different kinds of county outline maps:
1. plain outline maps can be shown with changing boundaries for each county from census to census. roane county was established in 1803 and can be followed from 1810 forward, for instance.
2. outline maps of any census year with an outline map of the county during the previous census as an overlay, permitting you to see additions or subtractions to the boundaries.
3. outline maps of any census year with an outline map of the county during the next census as an overlay, permitting you to see future additions or subtractions to the county's boundaries (similar to #2 above). click on 1840 map, for instance, to see the changes in roane county's boundaries between the 1840 and 1850 censuses.
near the bottom of the page, there's a quick recap of census information for tennessee - which federal censuses are available - which years and which counties.
