    A family death certificate has the residence as “51 Myrette Street, D.C.” Is that a typo, or was there really a Myrette St. in November 1879? Hope you know! THANKS!

    For the requestor: There are several sets of Baist surveys available for free download from the Library of Congress Web site. Go to http://www.loc.gov and search for Baist. Download the highest resolution pages of interest, then use a viewer such as Irfanview or Picasa so you can zoom in for the detail. I love these maps!
