A new, free website,, has been launched which offers access to a range of regularly updated maps from reputable sources such as the Ordnance Survey and Google. The sites offers a free toolkit which allows you to draw on the maps and to insert text and graphics. It also allows you to measure, style, colour and print finished maps or save them as PDFs.

Having selected a map to view, you can examine an area in which family members lived or create personalised maps showing, for example, the geographical movements of an individual family member, the distribution of different family members or the location of graves. You can also add information to maps from a range of layers grouped under various headings including 'heritage' and 'boundaries'.
