Atlases and Maps
and Maps can be a great aid to finding where your ancestors lived. Over
the years streets get knocked down, villages disappear and cities expand.
During the second world war many streets were bombed and areas changed
out of all recognition. We
have various atlases some of which include city/town centre plans and
are at a large enough scale to show houses.
These contain lists of place names with descriptions. They can give
detailed information including information on barony, borough, burgh,
chapelry, civil-parish, ecclesiastical parish, hamlet, liberty, market
towns, parish, quoad sacra parish, riding, tithing, town land and townships,
location, population, distance from nearest rail station, distance from
either London or Dublin, soil conditions, natural resources, goods manufactured,
names of churches, monuments, and historical information. Some also contain
maps to illustrate the county sections.
This four volume set of The National Gazetteer shows information on geography, industry and agriculture. This is an invaluable resource for those looking for background information and facts on locations within Great Britain and Ireland.
