“Everything happens somewhere” - though the surroundings may have changed today
you can still walk through doorways that your ancestors walked through 150-200 years
ago. Some families , like the Ogdens stayed in the same place for 150 years or more
while others moved far & wide to find work.
This section therefore highlights the locations of interest whether these are homes
people have lived in, worked and relaxed. This includes profiles of the towns/places
or features in the landscape that are related to the locations of their homes.
The places are structured from country down:
<country> / <county> / <town> / < locality> / <street name> / <house name or number>
The centuries old county structure is used throughout - even though today the less
consistent patchwork of unitary or two level structure is in place and still evolving.
All of this is in line with the data records. In addition - initially all one might
know about someone is that they originated from Scotland or a county - over time
it may be possible to improve the spatial resolution.
Profiles included so far are:
Cymru (Wales) - 
England - [Cumbria, Hampshire, Lancashire, London, Shropshire, Yorkshire]
Profiles will be added at each level to clarify the relevance of the place with relation
to the people involved.
There are just some holding pages currently but check out Lancashire/Middleton for
some information about the town where family members have lived for over 200 years.
On the GB Maps page you find a zoomable map of Gt Britain with most of the locations
relevant to these pages marked on it. Improvements to handle other geographic areas
and the growing number of locations is being investigated.
Linking people information and location adds another dimension to family record data.
Time then extends this further. The locations show family locations on 1 January
1965 (some people also lived nearby this area - eg Rhodes & Heywood).
