Seeking Maps for Context and Analysis in Urban Genealogical Research

with Melinda Kashuba

Urban maps are genealogically useful because they depict cities and adjacent areas where many of our ancestors gravitated to seek opportunities. Besides location, neighborhood land use, wealth, race, and property ownership can be found on urban maps. There are a plethora of maps available depicting cities but which ones are the most useful? This presentation will explore the multitude of opportunities to understand your ancestors' lives in American towns and cities. Though this presentation is United States centric, the information presented will apply to Canadian urban areas and will help in understanding the European roots of American cities. Examples from both public and private map collections will be discussed.

Join us on September 9th!
