If you go to Google Maps and put your address in, you should see a marker on the map for your location.  Then you can click on the Link symbol and copy the 'embed' code or you can simply take a screen shot of the page and crop it to what you want.

That is personal choice.  

For google, you just need to go to google.com/maps  Then enter in your location. Next on the bottom right you will see a gear. Click that and choose, "share and embed" and finally click on the Embed tab at the top of the pop up.  You should end up with something like this

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m5!3m3!1m2!1s0x8863d10497046665%3A0x1d427402e9d464d3!2sJack+Daniel&#39;s+Distillery%2C+Lynchburg+Highway%2C+Lynchburg%2C+TN!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sus!4v1386448085588" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0"></iframe>
