Welcome to the new Cartography (maps/ landkarten) area. (We are now in ‘production’.) What that means is…
We have completed transition of our map (cartographic) offerings to this new format. Our newest format should be easier for me to maintain and for you to access and view; although, it may not be quite as ‘slick’.
Should you encountered any difficulties please let me know.
As in the past, ManyRoads is committed to providing access to a wide variety of downloadable ‘free’ maps. It is our strong belief that maps form an extremely useful bridge to understanding both the movement of peoples and groups as well as to the life styles and life options that were available in different times.
To quote the USGS (United States Geological Service):
Maps are one of the many sources you may need to complete a family tree.
In genealogical research, maps can provide clues to where our ancestors may have lived and where to look for written records about them. Beginners should master basic genealogical research techniques before starting to use topographic maps.
