1880… Grover Cleveland and James G. Blaine were running for president, Victoria was queen, and my ancestors were scattered across at least 5 countries and 3 continents. [Click here to view the map in a new window]
The map below shows the likely location where my known living ancestors resided in 1880 and 1881. I organized them using the same method in the rest of the blog – color-coded by great-grandparent. If you click on the box on the top left corner, you can select which families you see on the map.
Some of the locations are down to the exact house, and are based on census and diary records. Other locations are educated guesses, based on indirect evidence. I made notes in each icon as to why I placed the marker where I did. Please click through to the person’s Ancestry page in order to see links to and images of the evidence I used.
If you have suggestions and corrections, please send me and email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know! I plan to update and change this map as I learn more.
