One of the major goals of the Historic Mapping Congress (HMC) is to gather information on the earliest roads and to map these roads.  To do this we need to build a repository of geographic data including the locations of fords and ferries, cities and settlements, roads and trails.  Over time the repository would grow until it was possible to locate and map previously unknown roads.

Your assistance in this effort is solicited and welcomed.  You are asked to submit information on these roads for our consideration.  It is most important that this information be authentic, accurate and complete.  On the subpage "Submitting a Feature" you will find the process and procedure for submitting this information. Every individual submitting a proposal shall be considered a member of the Congress.
