Atlases and Maps can be a great aid to finding where your ancestors lived. Over the years streets get knocked down, villages disappear and cities expand. During the second world war many streets were bombed and areas changed out of all recognition. We have various atlases some of which include city/town centre plans and are at a large enough scale to show houses. Gazetteers contain lists of place names with descriptions. They can give detailed information including information on barony, towns, parishes, population, and much more. Some also contain maps to illustrate the county sections.
This four volume set of The National Gazetteer shows information on geography, industry and agriculture. This is an invaluable resource for those looking for background information and facts on locations within Great Britain and Ireland.
