Family History Historical Maps from the National Library of Scotland By Aaron April 6, 2011 Share Share Copy Link If, like us, you’re a fan of historical maps, the National Library of Scotland website may have a lot you’re interested in. The NLS have uploaded a set of historical maps which overlay on Google Maps, making them easy to use and navigate. While there’s a focus on Scotland, there are maps for the whole of the UK also – and even beyond. You can view some of the NLS’s maps here. Or check out our favourite UK map – in very high detail – here. The main website of the National Library of Scotland can be found here.
