To search for a surname, type the name you're looking for in the box:
|Google Maps search box. Note yours will probably look slightly differently.|
As you can see there is a drop down of all of the people with the surname Main on the map. Remember, not everyone who owned property was listed in the atlas, also there could be a few other reasons that you can't find a name; I might have made a typo, the original surveyor made a mistake, or I was unable to fully read the name. Also remember that most of the times there is just an initial for the first name.
You can also switch between a normal map view and a satellite view. Sometimes you can still see the original house in the general area. You might also be able to see the property lines if trees or fences were left.

I have no intentions of fixing anything in this map, it's far too large to be able to do that. I do however want to release Google Earth versions where I can, if possible, add first names and make corrections. Hopefully this version will work to help some people locate relatives.
