"Maps and Plans for Family Historians" - Leader: Christine Hills


Record offices are full of maps and plans which could show where and in what conditions your ancestors lived and worked. Farms and villages which have been obliterated by later urban development can be rediscovered in conjunction with other documents. Maps can provide a window into the past. Using examples and case studies we will examine what is available, why and for whom they were produced and therefore how they can be of use to you in your research.
