    Week 38 (Sept. 16-22): On the Map

    Location, location, location!

    Location is key for our research.
    What is a discovery you've made using a map?
    Any ancestors found a town?
    What about a family who lived in a town with a strange or funny name?

      I have been having great fun using the overlay maps on NLS - not actually found anything for my tree, but been looking at Ampthill:

      https://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoo...layers=168&b=7

      use the slider bar at the bottom of the left hand box, and you can choose different dates of maps. sadly you can't use the older ones.

        A minor detail I hope, but did you get the tithe map images from The Genealogist? If so you may get clobbered by them for using their stuff. You don't seem to have a source in your article..
        The reason I'm asking is that I have plans to use some for my own article and have contacted them to ask for their policy regarding this, as well as their preferred credit/wording. After all the hassles we had to get permission to use some things for the magazine It is something I am very careful about.

        I'm going back now to look at your images to play "spot the Mannings."

            I think that others do it, was just looking at the British Library, but I cannot fathom how to get it working....should be simple.

            Trouble is I am so used to street view, I keep thinking it would be great to have street view on the old maps...hee hee

                  Thanks Caroline, the ones I have are from the Essex Record office and they granted me permission to use them. I have used them a couple of times already and credited the images as theirs, so good reminder I should have added that to my post, so will add that now, thank you
