How can i look at lakes before they were made? I want to be able to view lakes before they were made so i can see the structure and type of land there was before they were there. Ive tried google earth but it only goes to 1995 and the lakes are still there. any sugestions?

Go to the US Geological department, they have surveys prior to inundating the land... It'll cost ya a few bucks...

I would start here and give them a call to see what they have on file. The web-site is not showing what you are asking for; but they will be able to tell you who to go to for the maps before the lakes you are interested in were built.
