FamilySearch Maps


Thank to my friend Judy I now know about the FamilySearch Maps. She emailed me the link and asked how long they had been online – who knows? Certainly I don’t ! If you haven’t had a look at them then go and take a look as soon as you have finished reading this…..

You can opt in or out of several layers showing

  • Parish
  • County
  • Civil Registration District
  • Diocese
  • Rural Deanery
  • Poor Law Union
  • Hundred
  • Province
  • Division

Also there is a function whereby you can get various lists

  • Contiguous parishes
  • Radius place search

And then finally you can click to be taken to the

  • Search page
  • Catalogue
  • Family Tree page
  • Wiki

This is such a wonderful facility that it has already found it’s way onto my toolbar and I recommend that you earmark it as a favourite on your computer as well.

Thanks Judy Smile
