Maps for Genealogists

Lectures/Book Signings
Emily Jaycox

There’s much more to maps than simply finding directions, as the Missouri History Museum's head librarian Emily Jaycox will reveal in this in-depth presentation. Historic maps showing long-lost boundaries and landmarks can help give you a better understanding of your ancestors’ lives. Several specialized types of maps—including plats, fire insurance maps, and geological survey maps—may reveal new facts about your family history. Using maps in conjunction with other primary sources can yield even more information and help you feel as though you are walking where they once walked.
