From:lewisj02@edge.net, Jess Lewis:  
My son, while "surfing", recently came across a new (?) map service,  
that is really neat, and will be of interest to Genealogy Buffs.  
It is located at.......  
        http://www.mapquest.com    
Probably the most obscure of sites with the most active links to map resources is:  
  
      http://mmm.dartmouth.edu/pages/angus/maproom/links.html
