1885 Map of Coahuila, Mexico

I know that some of you may are researching the Mexican state of Coahuila. I for example have many ancestors that where from Coahuila. This map is dated 1885 and might be useful to see what towns used to be around your ancestors home town. Sometimes this will provide you with additional clues as to where to continue your research. If you click on the image you will be taken to a high quality image of the map. The detail is great.
