Historic Map Works is an online gallery of hundreds of historical maps. On Historic Map Works you can browse for maps by continent, country, state, and province. Contrary to my initial experience, downloading the map images is not free. But, you can view more than half of the maps as Google Maps overlays using Historic Map Works's free Historic Earth Basic.

"Creating your own filters: You have several options to create filters of your own on any site. Here are a few:
Take a look at previously mentioned FeedRinse, which filters out posts for your individual subscriptions by keyword, tag, author, and even profanity.
Another option, if you're a Chrome and Google Reader user, is the Google Reader Filter by Feed/Folder userscript. This adds a filtering box above your feeds to weed out words for an individual subscription or an entire folder.
