Locations: A Lot More Complicated Than You Realize!

Locations:  A lot more complicated than you realize!
 
Were you aware that US Counties changed their border 17,600 times since our country's birth?
 
This staggering number of changes illustrate the challenges and potential rewards that exist by notating the location of your facts correctly.   The more sophisticated software packages will automatically create a hierarchy of locations, giving you the ability to ferret out useful clues and many times leading you past a brick wall.  A variety of useful tools exist to help you find locations that might not exist anymore or later renamed.  However, the further you can research into the past requires you to learn the history of a location, including the specific dates of administrative boundaries changes, in order to properly notate a location of an event.  
 
Presented by Jon Smith, a genealogy course instructor at Howard Community College.
