The Vermont Atlas and Gazetteer is an excellent choice for both travel and research. Its maps list road surfaces, cemeteries, transportation routes, town divisions and even building locations (in older editions). The Vermont Road Atlas and Guide can also be a great Vermont map and information resource.

Another excellent map resource is the Beers Atlas. It lists owners and structures in each county in the late 1800s. Tuttle Publishing has reissued the county editions in their original forms.

However, the Vermont Historical Society and other research libraries in the state hold the entire Beers Atlas series on file.

Town lotting maps are full of valuable genealogical data. Each town’s land was split into numbered lots during the granting process. Families can be found and relationships to the community and to close neighbors can be determined using the lot numbers or the names of the original proprietors, which are listed in multiple land descriptions and records.

The Vermont Public Records Division, the Vermont Historical Society, various town offices, and other agencies across the state have lot maps available for researchers to look at.
