 State & County Resources

See a tutorial on state & county resources
The state resource page is a map of either the USA, showing the US states, of the UK showing counties in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, or of an individual US state showing counties.  From the larger country maps, clicking a state drills down into the state page, or clicking a county goes to data related to that county.

The color-coding counts the number of records for people who lived in the state or county at one time, with the key to the colors showing under the map.

Each state or country map has each of the following options:

Whose Branches:  (If you are registered and logged in) Choose to see all data on the site, or only your own data, or only data from everyone else but you.

Borders
: To help the color shading and borders be easier to see, there is the option to change the border color between black, dark gray, light gray, and none.

Century: To see people from only a certain timeframe, choose a year from the Century list.  To see a progression over time, choose several in succession -- like 1600's, then 1700's, then 1800's, etc.

Surname:  To see only people with a certain surname.  For wild card searches, type the beginning of a name followed by *.  For example, Gurg* finds any name beginning with "Gurg", but with any of the various endings.

An example...

From the World map click a country to see more about that country From the country map click a state to see more about that state. From the state map, click a county to see more about that county. The county page lists information about the people and places in that county, linking to their indivdual records. From the county page, click into a specific location for more information about that location and people from there.
