Regarding the use of family maps Dick Eastman says...
"Map My Family Tree™ is a great addition to any genealogy database. You can publish your research in the form of a geographic map and share it with friends, relatives and colleagues. You can see how your family is distributed across the country or the world.
You can analyze migration paths, trends in name, even type and place correlations, and other interesting facts. You can spot new opportunities for research by identifying courthouses, archives, etc., in proximity to your ancestors' homes...
I have enjoyed using this program for the past few days, and suspect that I will use it again and again in the future."
