I would love to see a plat map of Muskogee, OK and the surrounding areas during 1920 - 1950. I've discovered that my grand father and his ancestors are from the Muskgoee area and were part of the "great migration" in the 30's. I have some paper work showing the crops that were produced on their farms and would really like to know more. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

You can try gaining access to an archive of Sanborn Fire Insurance maps which are a widely used historic resource and generally date from the late 1800s to 1940s for Oklahoma.

If you can access Ancestry.com (It isn't cheap if you join) you could check out the U.S. Census records that would help locating where they were in 1920 and 1930. I don't know if the U.S. Gov't has searchable census records or not. My wife does all that kind of searching and I don't keep up with it much.
