Title: Historical Maps of Sweden
Whether you are working in Swedish church, taxation, or military records, there are lots of references to the places where people lived. With these references, you can try to look up the place on a historical map (a map created close to the time period the reference was made.)
See the place where your ancestor lived on a map that was created about the same time they lived there is really exciting. The information you see on the map can be used in your research strategy or to enhance your family history. A huge amount of historical maps have survived in Sweden.
