The Inside of Grandma's House

If Grandma's house is still standing (or even if it isn't), have you considered drawing a map showing the rooms in the house, the relative location of any outbuildings, etc.? Even if your scale isn't perfect, a drawing is better than no drawing.

Those with urban ancestors may have fire insurance maps to provide some of those details. Others with rural forebears are not so fortunate.

  1. Yes I did this for my G-G-grandfathers's house to show the room layout (and where he was laid out prior to the funeral) and the placement of outbuildings used in his stonemason business.
