I’m still plodding on with the genealogy. Progress slows up considerably after a while.
I’ve always had a fascination for maps, and being able to use multimap and google earth and the rest, has made searching for ancestors and the areas in which they lived, come alive.
I had seen various links to old-maps on the GENUKI website, but seldom do the seem to work.
However the maps at OLD-MAPS seem to be fully functional.
I am now searching the welsh borders for traces of my paternal grandmothers family, and I think they lived near LLANDDEWI SKIRRID in monmouthshire. It’s a wicked looking place, and in an earlier time I would have bitten off my arm to go rambling and walking in the Hills. Nowadays, I’ll have to be content with studying maps and photos. Oh the joys of the internet.
