 Regions

See a tutorial on state & county resources
The regional maps covering multiple states, the USA map covering all states by county, and the European map by province / county help to give a broad overview of which counties people were in over the whole region.  Clicking a state will go to a larger map of just that state or country.

Tip:  If you have a smaller screen, and you can't see all of a map at one time, use the browser's Zoom feature to Zoom out, making the map smaller.  If you have a larger screen and want to see more detail, Zoom In to make the map larger.  In FireFox, under "View", and in Internet Explorer 7, under "Page".

Each regional map, in addition to the maps for individual counties or other countries, 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.
