Every ancestor, at every moment, occupied a specific, physical location. Maps decode and amplify the significance of those locations by providing context and background information. This heavily illustrated lecture shows examples of the map types best-suited to genealogy, and the syllabus provides links to quality online sources for those maps.
 
Because maps are visual they can often make a  place more vivid and show our ancestors' lives in new ways. For example, maps show the land's fertility (soil map), the waterways (physical map), the closest courthouse (political map) and the neighboring farm's owner (cadastral map). Specialized maps can document battle history, locations of teen mothers, oceanic shipping routes, Chicago before and after the fire, and Africa's real size, to name only a few.
 
Maps, and other geographical tools, help with identify or relationship questions by augmenting or even starring in proof discussions. Proofs and case studies which relied on map evidence in rural and urban settings will be dissected and explained. 

This was presented to a live webinar audience on June 19, 2018. 1 hour 32 minutes, plus 12 pages of handouts. The recording is also included as part of the monthly or annual membership.
