I was very surprised and pleased to find your site. I seldom examine a genealogical problem without turning to a map.I note your use of GE historic overlays in your PA research. I have been overlaying English maps on GE for my family research using Map My Ancestors to track movements. It also has the capability of mapping one name study distributions.

Any way keep up the great work I will look back regularly.

Small world I just geo-coded 152 Walnut St... in Winnipeg!

Great job so far. I've thought of doing something similar for the state of Maine, showing (for example) the changes in county boundaries and county roads.

I've also tried using historic USGS topo maps as overlays -- really interesting for places like Boston that have deliberately changed their geography over the years.
