Maps and Sites

The maproom contains a collection of maps, links to maps, and pictures or graphics which may be of interest to those doing Yoder research. Hopefully, this will be a growing collection. Suggestions are welcome.

If you have maps that can be scanned and presented here please contact Chris Yoder, editor, "Yoder Newsletter". If you know of World Wide Web sites that have maps which fit our general criteria; "of interest to those doing Yoder research", please tell us the URL of those locations, so links can be established to those sites. Your help will make this map room a useful addition to our archives.
