great map site #general

I also found this a great map sit for some locations but not for
others. Whereas Mapquest always shows the locations of stetlach found on
Stetl Seeker (JewishGen), Multimap doesn't recognize may towns in their
Search option. You should know some major towns in the vicinity of your
target before using Multimap and you must be prepared for language and
spelling variations on the name you are seeking. There were several towns
I searched that were found by Mapquest but not by Multimap.

I just found a really great map site on the internet at
http://www.multimap.com. If you click on the world map picture, and
continue to click away, you can find almost any little village. I found
dozens of small shtetls I have never been able to find on any other
internet mapping system.
