HANDOUT for Old Maps (from YouTube Video on Genealogy TV). Learn where to find old maps to help with your family history research. Genealogy and telling the story of your family tree takes on a whole new view when you add old maps to help understand where your ancestors lived. Finding old maps is truly a treasure hunt, is fun, and can be rewarding. Talk about visuals, these old maps can even have your ancestors on them by name. Watch to the end of the video where I show you how I lined up my ancestors on a map from 1885 with a census record from 1880.
