Using the GRO index and parish records we can, for the most part, find the vital events of our ancestors and from directories and the same sources find their occupation, but in order to complete the picture we need to put them in their place.
A map can immediately show the places where they spent their daily lives, their houses and their places of work. This talk looks at the essential historical maps available from about the last two hundred years.
