Free his­toric map­ping tool goes live

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

Maps show­ing his­toric bound­aries across Eng­land and Wales can now be viewed on­line. Avail­able free of charge, the Lon­don Fam­i­lySearch Cen­tre’s Ju­ris­dic­tion Maps tool ( lon­don­fam­i­ly­his­tory.org/ ju­ris­dic­tion-maps) en­ables users to view the pre­cise lo­ca­tions of coun­ties, civil reg­is­tra­tion dis­tricts, hun­dreds and Poor Law Unions in 1851. Cru­cially, each map has been aligned with mod­ern satel­lite im­agery, mean­ing that it is pos­si­ble to zoom in and see where the bor­ders would ap­pear to­day.
