The Newberry Library announced this week a new interactive on-line map for genealogists.

You can enter any address and the interactive map will give you a list of places where you might be able to find information about your great great great-grandpa, or the person who lived in your house in the 1800s.

It's pretty cool.

Check it out at Chicagoancestors.org.
