Here is something interesting,  courtesy of the Genealogy Insider blog on the Family Tree Magazine website: a free online tool from the New York Public Library called the  Map Warper. This program allows you to overlay and old map on to a new one, then digitally rectify them. A brief video tutorial is available on the site. There are 20,000+ maps available.
