Maps [Prev] [Next]

Mapping features are built in to Geves. This means that just by typing a placename onto a source document, or directly into an event, you can see when and where it happened on a map. You do not need to enter its longitude or latitude, this is done for you.

Red dots show where events occurred

The places relating to a person, a group or people (e.g. everyone on an ancestor chart) or the places on a source document can be shown automatically.

Currently there is detailed historical mapping of England, Wales and Scotland which include county changes since 1760 and a gazetteer of 30000 place names.

There are also country maps of the world.
