Maps are essential when doing genealogical research. Maps can help determine:

  • Jurisdictions and boundaries
  • Geographical and physical features
  • Relationships between towns and counties

Use many sources to locate a map closest to the time period your ancestor lived in a certain location.


Here are some references and web sites to assist you in locating maps.
