It also includes a table of distances and a map of the county created by Robert Morden. It’s an ideal reference work for locating where your ancestors lived in early-18th-century Worcestershire and getting a sense of their community and surroundings.

Maps, atlases, and gazetteers are essential tools for family historians. Maps may be either topographical (emphasizing land forms) or historical (emphasizing historical events) in nature, though either type can show cultural features, such as the town and creek names that are so important for research.
