The Road Most Travelled


Following the migration of our ancestors can be quite interesting. I use the tool on Ancestry ( search ) to see the paths they took. It shows on a map, the locations based on records such as the census. It will map the location of the census they were in, and you can see the others areas surrounding. Also , this will help in locating other family members. You will the names of other communities on the map. In the censuses that are available, you can search by state, county or township. People usually did not move far from the original site.
