Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ONLINE RESOURCES -

Al­though the range of Scot­tish maps here is se­cond to none, this web­site also in­cludes de­tailed his­toric Ord­nance Sur­vey maps for much of the UK with more to come. You may be able to view the ac­tual house that your an­ces­tors lived in. Know Your Place is a unique re­search re­source for those wish­ing to pin down the lo­ca­tion of their an­ces­tors’ homes in Bris­tol. The site con­tains maps of the city from 1750 to the present day that can be over­laid to show changes in the city’s de­vel­op­ment over 250 years. There are also lay­ers of lo­cal in­for­ma­tion and records that can be ac­cessed in­clud­ing thou­sands of his­toric pho­tos of the city. Plans are cur­rently be­ing made to ex­tend this re­source to cover the his­toric coun­ties of Glouces­ter­shire and Som­er­set. Rec­om­mended by the Bris­tol and Avon Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­ety
