You might have a brick wall if your difficult research problem is similar to the following.
At a recent conference a student showed me her family group record of a family she had trouble with for many years. Her ancestor, John WILLIAMS, was born in:
Woodstock, Windham County, Connecticut in 1712.
Because I too, had ancestors from the area, I knew immediately what the problem was. I quickly opened the AniMap software, plotted Woodstock on the map of Connecticut, and changed the year to 1712. Immediately, we knew why the brick wall had existed for so long.
In 1712, Woodstock was in a completely different county AND a completely different state!
Her family group record should have recorded his birth as:
Woodstock, Suffolk County, Massachusetts
Knowing the correct jurisdiction for the time period is vital to successful research. AniMap is the only software for the U.S. and Canada in which you can plot the place and see the changing county boundaries throughout time.
