Map it Out: Using Maps to Locate Your Irish Ancestors

Presenter: Donna M Moughty


When you’re trying to figure out which individual of the same name is your ancestor, locations are important and maps can help.  Our ancestors didn’t move around a lot, but they may have moved just a short distance into another townland, or, if they were on the border of a parish or even county, they might have slipped over the border.  That’s why maps are important!
