How does Map My Family Tree Work?

Progeny Software has compiled an extensive gazetteer or dictionary of over 3.3-million geographical names from around the world. Using this gazetteer, Map My Family Tree will geographically-code all life events in your genealogy file (ie. births, marriages, deaths, etc.) and plot them on maps from around the world. With state-of-the-art vector mapping technology, Map My Family Tree allows you to zoom into local maps so you can see even more detail. In addition, Map My Family Tree will redflag any place name data errors that are inconsistent with the complete and correctly-spelled place names from the gazetteer. Plus you can quickly see each location on an online map , satellite image or aerial photograph using Progeny's built-in link to Google ™ Maps, Googe Earth, TerraServer USA and MapQuest.com.

Pinpoint Locations of Births, Marriages & Deaths
Map My Family Tree will automatically geographically-code all life events in your genealogy file (ie. births, marriages, deaths, etc.) and plot them on maps from around the world. If there is more than one life event per geographic location, a single dot will represent the multiple events. Zoom in further for a more detailed analysis.
 
 
Zoom In for More Details
Map My Family Tree uses state-of-the-art vector mapping technology so you see more , not less, geographic detail as you zoom in.
 
 
Track Family Migrations
Map My Family Tree will show you family migrations. This is especially easy using the world and country maps. Then zoom in to see detailed events in specific locations
 
 
Link to Online Maps, Satellite Images & Aerial Photographs Automatically link to Google™ Earth, Google Maps, TerraServer USA and MapQuest.com to see your ancestors' home towns on online maps, satellite images and aerial photographs.

Filter Your Data
Select which people and events you want displayed on your map by filtering your data by name, ancestor line, descendant line, date, event type and gender. This is especially helpful when you want to create maps with single family lines, births only, events from a specific time period, etc.
   
Add Place Markers
Post place markers to highlight certain individuals, family lines, events, etc. Select from a list of place markers of varying shapes and colors or import one or more images to use as custom place markers.
   
Select Time Period
Use the time scroll bar to dynamically select which time period you want displayed on your map. As you slide the thumbtrack along the scroll bar, you will see the towns “twinkling” to show the movements, voyages and migrations of your ancestors.
   
Customize Your Maps with Colors & Fonts
Customize your maps with over 16-million colors and a wide range of font styles and sizes.
 
Search for Place Names
   
Search for Place Names!
Look up over 3.3-million place names from around the world, including US churches and cemeteries. If there is more than one location for that place name, all options (along with their latitude and longitude) will be displayed.
 
Check Your Genealogy File for Inaccuracies
 
Spell-check all Place Names
Identify misspelled place names in your genealogy file or any GEDCOM file you may be importing into your family history records. Copy and paste the correction to your genealogy file.
 
 
Find Missing Counties
Map My Family Tree will list all incomplete place names and fill in the missing blanks. This is especially helpful when you need county names to research census records. If there is more than one possible correction (for example there is a place called Shiloh in 10 different counties in Tennessee ), Map My Family Tree will list them all.
 
 
Identify all Data Errors
As well as misspellings and incomplete place names, Map My Family Tree will pinpoint names that are ambiguous, listed with the wrong county or other geographic jurisdiction, unknown, non-specific, missing commas, and missing altogether.
 
 
 
 
 
Define Custom Places
Map My Family Tree allows you to add other place names, such as historical place names that no longer exist, to the built-in gazetteer. Or you can record unofficial and little-known names (like Grandpa's Homestead ) and relate them by latitude and longitude to existing places.
