Maps are very useful tools that can provide informative context to genealogical research. They can be used to better understand the localities in which our ancestors lived and their movement between towns. Maps also enable us to understand the impact of changing geopolitical borders over time. Even if your ancestors resided in the same town over many years, that town may have belonged to different countries during that time. Understanding this provides insights into where genealogical records may be found for your ancestors.

In order to effectively use maps in your research, you must first identify the town in which your ancestors lived. Below are some informative resources to help you.
