Plat Maps have long been a great resource for individuals researching information on property. A plat map is a scaled drawing of a piece of land with marked divisions showing acreage and, often, property owners. Genealogists find these types of maps particularly interesting as a way to track family ownership of property.
Recently, the Archives & Area Research Center added to it’s collection of historical plat maps for Walworth, Jefferson, and Rock Counties. The maps date from the 1950s through 2009.
