Robert Putman Antique Maps & Atlases
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
If asked for a specialty, I admit sea-charts. As a young man I was an officer, both in the merchant marine and the Royal Dutch Navy
and interest in the sea started my career as an antiquarian. In 1983 I wrote a book, titled “Early Sea Charts”-since long out of print- in
2005 followed by a book about 17th century Dutch sea-charts, called ‘Nederlandse Zeekaarten in de Gouden Eeuw’ . A new activity of
mine is the Virtual Antique Map Fair http://www.antiquemaps-fair.com where a varying number of attending antique map dealers
offer their material to the visiting map collectors.

Simon Hunter Antique Maps
I have been involved in the world of antiques for longer than I care to remember, but I first began to specialise in antique maps at the
end of the 1980s. Simon Hunter Antique Maps was launched in January 1989 from an antiques gallery in Meeting House Lane in
Brighton. I started working from home in 1998, concentrating on antique map fairs in London and on issuing printed catalogues. The
advent of the Internet soon led to the setting up of a website, where I have thousands of maps at reasonable prices.

cities, towns, and villages throughout Eastern Europe and North Africa. The maps include scales of 1:1000 000, 1:500 000, 1:300 000,
1:100 000, 1:50 000 and 1:25 000 and cover many major battles and campaigns. Still photos cover areas in Eastern and Western

LitvakSIG: Lithuanian Special Interest Group
LitvakSIG is the primary Internet resource for Lithuanian-Jewish (Litvak) genealogy research worldwide. Our mission is to preserve
Litvak heritage by discovering, collecting, documenting, and disseminating information about the once vibrant Jewish community of
Lithuania. LitvakSIG has long-term relationships with the archives in Lithuania. We organize a number of geographic-specific project
groups whose primary purpose is to identify and collect data from available records for Lithuania from the Russian Empire Period and
Independent Lithuania. Contributors to our projects gain access to the data we collect in Excel format. This LitvakSIG.org website is
our platform for providing the information we collect and our searchable databases to the public. In addition, we host a private website
for our Dues-Paying Membership: Litvaksigmembersonlysite.shutterfly.com, which has additional content including records, catalogs of
selected Lithuanian Archives, and scholarly articles. Some highlights of our work include the All Lithuania Database (ALD), a free,
searchable database that currently has over 1.1 million records and is updated quarterly. The LitvakSIG Online Journal, an edited,
online journal with articles of interest to people researching their Litvak heritage. And the LitvakSIG Discussion List, a moderated
Internet discussion forum for the exchange of information on Litvak genealogy research. (AK: I have been a member of LitvakSIG for
over ten years -- my site is hotlinked on their members-only site, and I offer to research, and send digital images, of folks doing research on
their Litvak relatives and ancestors. Litvaks and ethnic Lithuanians lived side by side in historic Lithuania since the 15th century, when
they were officially welcomed to live there.)
This website is organized exclusively for educational purposes: to promote and encourage the study, understanding, preservation and
appreciation of the philately and postal history of Lithuania. Our philatelic links directory is especially useful for its hand-picked links to
Lithuania philatelic organizations, philatelic experts, philatelic auctions, stamp catalogs, rare stamps, and private collections online. Our
aim is to make it the most comprehensive specialized Lithuanian philatelic directory on the Internet. The second goal of this site is not
only to provide links, but also to provide a reference point for collectors and dealers of stamps, and other philatelic items.

David Rumsey Map Collection:
The David Rumsey Map Collection was started over 25 years ago and contains more than 150,000 maps. The collection focuses on rare

collection includes atlases, wall maps, globes, school geographies, pocket maps, books of exploration, maritime charts, and a variety of
cartographic materials including pocket, wall, children's, and manuscript maps. Items range in date from about 1700 to 1950s.
Digitization of the collection began in 1996 and there are now over 39,000 items online, with new additions added regularly. The site is
free and open to the public. Here viewers have access not only to high resolution images of maps that are extensively cataloged, but also
to a variety of tools that allow to users to compare, analyze, and view items in new and experimental ways. Maps are uniquely suited to
high-resolution scanning because of the large amount of detailed information they contain. In their original form, maps and atlases can
be large, delicate, and unwieldy. Digitization increases their accessibility, and when combined with online catalogs, they can be searched
in a variety of ways. The site allows public access to rare maps that have been hidden or available only to a few.

feature a guest speaker, and are an opportunity to meet, share interests, and socialize with, fellow map-lovers.
In the vastness of the World Wide Web when necessary could not find a single collection of old, vintage, historical, and just interesting
cards belonging to the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, ie to the current territory of the Republic of Belarus (also in Belarus, Belarusian SSR)
well, and partly to Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Russia and Poland.Thus was born the idea for this blog portal site.
In order to download the maps you do not need to pay money. We do not make money selling maps, charts and diagrams!

Berkeley Library, University of California: Captured German Map
During World War II and in its immediate aftermath the U.S. Army Map Service (AMS) acquired large quantities of captured German World
War II maps which were important planning tools for the war of aggression waged by the Nazi regime and document the exploitation of
resources in Nazi-occupied territories. These maps proved invaluable to U.S. military planners during the early Cold War years, particularly
German military map series covering eastern and southeastern Europe. By the mid-1950s, however, the U.S. Army Map Service started to
deposit these German maps in U.S. research libraries. Today the German World War II maps form important legacy collections in many
American map libraries, including the UC Berkeley Library map collection. After 1945, U.S. map libraries largely focused on cataloging and
promoting the English-language American AMS and British GSGS World War II maps. Resource descriptions created for German World
War II military map series were rudimentary at best and even today generally consist of bare bones cataloging records that lack access
points and commonly include mis-attributions. As a result, in many ways the holdings of German World War II military map series in
American map libraries represent hidden collections.
