Researching Historic Maps
A virtual talk by Sara Campbell

For the family researcher, learning about the places our ancestors lived helps put their lives in perspective. This talk helps us understand the history of map-making, categories of maps that can be used, and where to look for maps relevant to one’s research. Correlating maps with other records of the time period helps us find details that might not have been uncovered otherwise.  Select local and regional maps will be used to illustrate the information historic maps can and cannot provide.
