Maps & Geographical Information
maps and information can help the researcher locate specific individuals as
well as discover locations both in the United States and throughout the world
that have either ceased to exist by name, have changed names, or have become
parts of different governmental entities. Geographical genealogy can be as
important as knowing an ancestor's name. Historical and military maps and
atlases will help clarify where records are now located that may be of value.
histories will often provide information on an individual's ancestry as well as
give some indication of the owner's occupation and financial status.
