One of my favorite map sites is the Newberry collection. One day at the Henderson nevada library we spent one afternoon googlingmaps.com and looking up the area in the countries our genealogy members families came from. Give me a map and I can take a trip without ever leaving my house. Maybe that's why I'm postcardless.

To Tammy Mellard Wheeler and others who are interested.
To find cemetery maps, go to:
http://geonames.usgs.gov/domestic/ USGS Board on Geographic Names
Go to: Search Domestic Names
http://geonames.usgs.gov/pls/gnispublic/f?p=116:1:2972239826708558::NO::P1_COUNTY,P1_COUNTY_ALONG:n%2C
Type in: State, County, and Feature Class: Cemetery
That should bring up all the identified cemeteries in that county. Click on one.
This brings you to the detailed description of that cemetery. Look to the right. Click on whatever mapping service you prefer. I like MapQuest because I can see the Street Map and the Aerial Map, plus zoom in to get better directions. I'm sure all choices are good in many different ways.

I am a mapoholic!!! I don't know how anyone can do genealogy without maps. My dad taught me how to read - and fold - a road map before I ever went to school.
