Get Familiar With the Map

How familiar are you with the local geographical features (both natural and political) near where your ancestor used to live? It is not bad to refer to a map when doing your research, but if you aren't familiar with some of the basic features (adjacent counties, nearby towns, states, rivers, etc.) it may inadvertently hinder your research.

  1. The country road where I grew up was the boundary for District 1 and District 3 in the county. My grandparents and other kin voted at a different place than my parents. An unusual feature for this road was that all the rain that fell on the North side of the road went to one river and the rain falling on the South side of the road went to a different river. Land to the North was hilly woods; to the South the land was rolling meadows.
