This is one of a series of maps that will help genealogists, local historians, and government officials determine the precise boundary of every Wisconsin county at any point in time. It was first published in the monograph, Origin and Legislative History of County Boundaries in Wisconsin, a publication prepared by the Wisconsin Historical Records Survey of the Works Projects Administration (Madison, Wis. : The Survey, 1942). That book excerpted every state or territorial law defining county boundaries and illustrated them with a series of maps based on the G.L.O. township and range system. We have reproduced here only the maps for each county, and not the laws. Like many W.P.A. publications, the original book was crudely printed by mimeograph and the scanned images accurately reflect the quality of the original work.
