Why Use A Map?

Many government records of genealogical value in the United States are kept by county governments, knowing which county an ancestor lived in, and which counties are nearby, is an important part of U.S. genealogical research. Among the county records of importance are:

Marriage Records
These may be actual records, licenses, or bonds, with the names of the bride and groom, the date of the marriage (or license or bond), and often the names of the parents, minister (or Justice of the Peace), and witnesses.

Probate Records
Wills and other papers relating to the deceased. These will usually show the names of family members and give their relationships to the departed.

Land and Property Records
Deeds and other records of the transfer or lease of property, with the names of the seller and buyer, a description of the property, the price of the transaction, and the date.

Court Records
These can range from civil to criminal cases, as well as county business, granting business licenses, and other activities.

Census Schedules
Although not compiled by county governments, the federal censuses (taken every ten years beginning in 1790) were organized by counties [and territories]. Beginning in 1850, federal censuses showed every member of the family with his or her age and birthplace.
