ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt - 30 Jan 2017


DearREADERS,Ol' Myrt here was totally blown away today as we explored the interactive map for England and Wales at FamilySearch. Thanks to +Monique Riley  for suggesting we take a look. The ability to readily screen share and explore sites together makes our hangouts shine. It's an honor to work with our panelists and interact with our viewers as Cousin Russ brings in their comments.

This is the link Ol' Myrt discovered with Monique's help. I searched the FamilySearch Wiki for the term 'England maps' (without the quote marks) and in the third paragraph found the following:
"Use FamilySearch's 1851 Jurisdiction Map, an interactive map revealing the various levels of jurisdictions in each county in England showing parishes, registration districts (post-1834), probate courts, and many other jurisdictions, as well as an Ordnance Survey map base map"
The interactive map is what we explored together, live and in person. I love learning how to use the map and will share this immediately with my neighbor who is researching in the very populated area of London in the late 1700s.

+Sue Adams mentioned the Vision of Britain http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk
and
GenUKI (UK and Ireland Genealogy) http://www.genuki.org.uk

Oh, yes, we did talk about other things. Watch the rewind to follow along. :)
