Cartographic Resources for Genealogical Research: Eastern Europe and Russia

Reference Atlases

Both modern and historical atlases can be another valuable source of information for locating communities in East Central Europe, Eastern Europe, and Russia. Not only do they include maps at varying scales of the desired area, but many include gazetteers, as well, often keyed to the maps.

The following titles have been consulted by reference staff in the Geography and Map Division, and link to fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. Links to additional online content are included when available.
