The Parchment Rustler: Maps and the Family Historian

I suggest reading the latest post on The Parchment Rustler blog which is Walking in their Footsteps: Maps and the Family Historian.

The article holds that maps strengthen the foundations of your family history research and help you navigate tricky decisions. It gives top tips to remember when you’re mapping, and mentions key resources you won’t want to miss. It's a 20-minute read, and more when you explore the sources and tools mentioned.

And there's a promise of more on digital mapping tools in a future post.

While at the site take a look at previous blog posts.
