- Arphax Publishing has updated its HistoryGeo online historical maps subscription service with new map-viewing tools and new content, including The First Landowners Project (nearly 8 million original landowners) and the Antique Maps Project (more than 4,000 maps from around the United States). HistoryGeo also has a new blog, training videos, and a surname search to help people use the site. (Anyone can run a surname search to see if your family surnames occur on any of the site’s maps, though you must subscribe to view details on the matches.)
- A new website that combines family history mapping and social media, Place My Past, has made updates including easier finding historical maps for a place you’re viewing, ability to embed maps onto your blog or website, and the ability to overlay data (such as historical boundaries) onto your maps. You can upload a GEDCOM and view the main map as a free member. Subscribers can upload and annotate maps, connect with other members and more. See a comparison of member and subscriber benefits here.
- Subscription and pay-as-you-go site Findmypast.com just added 2.5 million records of the British in India from 1698 to 1947. They include church and civil registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, army officer marriages, civil service records and more. Read more about the new records on the findmypast blog.
- If you have a tree on MyHeritage and you find a MyHeritage record for a relative not yet in your tree, you now can add the relative to your tree directly from the record (instead of going to your tree, adding the relative, then going back to the record and extracting information into the new profile). See how to do this on the MyHeritage Blog.
