Critical Gen-Helpers

Good maps are critical to making sense of much of the gen-data we all find and review.  In the olden days without modern transportation, family locations rarely changed any great distance, which enables up to match "stray" individuals into their families with quite good accuracy.  One needs maps and coordinates to accomplish that!

Especially in Germany and Europe, there have been many changes in boundaries and nations over the centuries, which makes old maps from different eras very important to understanding the past.   After many many hours of cruising the WWW, I have been fortunate enough to find some goodies; those that are or may be relevant to ZellTree are "somewhere" on the ZellTree website on a (hopefully) relevant webpage.

Below are just a few of the "KEY" maps - use the thumbnails.
Here is a 1994 map of Germany, produced by the CIA.  Imagine what else they have that is NOT available?  !!

1882sBavaria.jpg (194726 bytes) 1882 South Bavaria

This is from FEETHS, part of a beautiful map-set 1882 - Germany

These are the current states or districts in Bavaria.  Be careful, things changed very much over the centuries, so consider this useful for "today" but make sure you check carefully if it's "yesterday" you want!

The 1882 F.E.E.T.H.S Germany MapSet at http://feefhs.org

From FEETHS you'll find a beautiful matching set of 12 maps covering all of Germany, dated 1882, a time more relevant to searching for earlier ancestors.

 A word to the wise.....their 1882 maps are a matched to-scale set.  If resized, of course they would not fit together!
The FEETHS website is highly recommended.  You'll find many more historic maps.
