Maps are keys to understanding the places where your ancestors lived. If you can find a map of a locality made about the time your ancestors lived there, the boundary and jurisdiction changes will help you understand the land records and movements of your ancestors more clearly than a more recent map.  This class will show different kinds of historical maps that you can use in your genealogical research.  In many cases, they could break down those brickwalls you might have.
