Is there any Map software that various Internet users can modify?

I'm looking for some sort of "map" where various Internet users can go and put a pin on an address and include their name as having lived there at some point.
This would need to be something where more than one person can say they lived at a particular house.

I'm trying to bring an old, small town closer together on Facebook.
Problem is, it's such an old town with people moving on average of every two years, that we all forget who the other person was or where they lived.
