New Map Layer - We have digitized an original 1714 New Map of England, Scotland, and Ireland for display in our
Genetic Homeland Finder maps.
This layer is currently the default for maps whose center is in the British Isles or you can manually choose it from the layer control.
Homeland Finder version 3.00
When starting a new search, we have added an easy-to-use Seach Wizard where you simply type one surname and the
best dataset will be selected for you by default. This features gets you to a map faster and easier.
For more complex queries or to use multiple surnames, you can still use the full set of Criteria.
Save Map Feature
You can now save up to 10 personalized maps from the Genetic Homeland Finder maps to your User Profile.
From the Profile page you can see your Saved Maps and click on a link to
open that view back up in the Finder. Saved maps contain a watermark but you can purchase the map image for a modest price
to have the watermark removed.
Additional Information includes links from search results to Books, DNA Projects, and references on family history and geography.
Introducing Genetic Homeland
GeneticHomeland.com is a set of online tools for enhancing genealogy research by geographically pinpointing the latitude and longitude
of historical records and events. If you would like to learn the specific geographical place where your ancestors came from, try our
web applications which enable you to generate data maps in real-time to see the spatial relationship
between multiple surnames and datasets.
Beyond just geographically plotting historical records like tax rolls and censuses, we are also digitizing and geocoding non-traditional locations like castles,
clan histories, and Y-DNA signatures.
