How can I find a town road map?

Postby dalbino83 » 31 Jul 2007, 00:33

I'd love to get my hands on a road map of Campodipietra (near Campobasso in Molise). Google has a street map online that has some of the streets listed, but I'd like to find something more detailed so that I can find all the addresses where my relatives have lived. Many of the streets listed in the birth records are not showing up on that Google map.

It doesn't have to be an online map. A paper map is good. An older map is fine, too. It doesn't have to be an original; if someone has an atlas and Campodipietra has a page in that atlas, I'd be happy to have a photocopy of the page.

Can anyone help? I'd be glad to reimburse anyone for expenses.

Thanks,
Donna

Try this link - it should help....

[url=http://www.comuni-italiani.it/070/008/mappa.html]http://www.comuni-italiani.it/070/008/mappa.html

Just click on the + or - on the left hand side (under the arrows) of the map to zoom in or out!
The arrows will 'scroll' you R or L - Up or Down!

Or enter specific road/street names - I think that works too....

Good luck Donna!

Thanks. That one is also based on Google maps, so it doesn't have the missing streets. I think I'll just have to go to Italy to buy a map!

Hi Donna,

Have you tried to see if you can find a more detailed map with street names on Google Earth? I love the satelite mapping!

Hi donna here it is a little video made by little students of Campodipietra, abt the Campodipietra emigrants in USA in the late century; I found it wonderful..
