Map your family’s past

Historical maps let you go beyond names and dates and consider your ancestors’ lives within their wider world. Thanks to our new partnership with Cassini, you can now order personalised maps tailored to the time and place in which your family lived.

Cassini specialises in producing historical maps for modern-day researchers. Now you can choose between house, street and town level plans from 1805 right up to the 1940s. Simply type in a postcode or place name to see all your options.

The maps can show you everything from the nature of the landscape to local transport links. You can discover forgotten place names, and even trace your ancestors’ journeys to work. Then compare your historical chart to a modern map to see how the region has changed through the centuries. for more click here
