Mappy Monday: Maps of Europe over Time to Help Your Genealogy

I’m still hunting for maps to help me place the birthplaces of Niederanven’s citizens in 1843…. Turns out historic maps of Luxembourg are really  hard to find.  In searching, I stumbled across a fantastic site.



Atlas Historique was designed to help teachers teach geography but can be equally helpful for genealogists. Their outline maps of Europe demonstrate how borders change over time. You may need a modern map to locate your ancestor’s home country, but once you’ve found it, it should be easy to trace for decades. Now you’ll know where records might be found.
