Did you know about this, if you did why didn’t you tell me ?!!
Thanks to Thomas MacEntee on Hack Genealogy for pointing me to a blog post on History Tech I can now tell you about the maps from the British Library which are now online. They are fascinating and so helpful for giving a sense of place for our ancestors. I remember years ago wonder why a certain set of ancestors went to a town some distance to find wives/husbands. There seemed to a few parishes which were a lot closer, but looking at a map showing the topography I found the reason – a range of hills which at that time didn’t have any roads over them. Very obvious when you look at a map!
So thanks Thomas & thanks Glenn.
