Extractions: Research Notes Minnesota Maps and Atlases Where people lived often dictated how they lived and kept records. In a frontier attracting settlers from New England, Scandinavia, Germany, Ireland and other points, living among the descendents of early fur traders, entrepreneurs and Indians, land is a critical piece in the family puzzle. Excellent maps of the state and where the immigrants settled can be found in They Chose Minnesota , a classic work on ethnic roots within the state. The next question is often "Who lived next door?" In addition to the census records, the orderly pattern of the landscape provides clues, too. That pattern results from the Land Ordinance of 1785, the American Rectangular Land Survey System , which created an arrangement of counties, townships and sections. Based on a 'township' with six-by-six numbered sections of one square mile, it affected the placement of roads, property boundaries, even schools and buildings. With a Minnesota land description, a researcher can use both old and current maps to locate family property. A typical description provides township, range and section numbers and can be found on assessment rolls, in wills, or deeds and mortgages.

Extractions: Madison, Wis. More Information While searching for the Northwest Passage, French explorer Jean Nicolet visited Wisconsin in 1634. He arrived at Green Bay, and traveled southwest via the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers until he reached the Mississippi. Some 200 years later the Wisconsin Territory was organized and Madison was chosen as the permanent capital. On May 29, 1848, Wisconsin became the 30th state in the Union with Nelson Dewey serving as the first governor. According to most sources, Wisconsin means: "Gathering of the waters" and is derived from the Ojibwe language. The state was once home to more than a dozen Indian tribes, including the Winnebago, Potawatami, Oneida and Menominee. Wisconsin received an influx of Scandinavians, Germans, and other northern Europeans in the mid- to late 1800s. Today the state has a population of over 5,100,000. Wisconsin is known as the Badger State after the living habits of early lead miners in the region who either lived in mine shafts or dug their homes out of the sides of hillsjust like badgers do. The state's large dairy industry has contributed to Wisconsin's reputation the world over as "American's Dairyland".

Extractions: Research Notes Using Maps and Atlases in Your Genealogical Research Family history research is more than filling in dates and names on a pedigree or family group chart. Where people lived often dictated how they lived and kept records. In a frontier attracting settlers from New England, Scandinavia, Germany, Ireland and other points, living among the descendents of early fur traders, entrepreneurs and Indians, land is a critical piece in the family puzzle. Anyone who has flown over rural Minnesota on a clear day has seen the orderly pattern of the landscape. Initiated by the Land Ordinance of 1785, the American Rectangular Land Survey System Finding cemeteries , especially abandoned and private ones, can be especially difficult. In the late 1930s and early 1940s, the WPA hired workers in each county to locate and document all their cemeteries, whether active or not. These manuscripts are held by the Minnesota Historical Society, and extracts of the names of those buried are published in the Minnesota Genealogical Journal . The land descriptions of all these cemeteries, plus others found on topographic and other maps, have been compiled in

Extractions: More Information Maps are one of the many sources you may need to complete a family tree. In genealogical research, maps can provide clues to where our ancestors may have lived and where to look for written records about them. Beginners should master basic genealogical research techniques before starting to use topographic maps. Introductory books on genealogy suggest timesaving ways to plan, gather, organize, and record findings. To learn basic genealogical research techniques, it's best to start with the most concise, easy-to-read books, gazetteers, articles, pamphlets, and other sources that apply directly to the kind of research you plan to do. Books on the shelves of your local library may not include those that will best serve your purpose. However, many libraries and bookstores have the latest edition of Books in Print. Its subject guide gives the titles, authors, publishers, and prices of hundreds of books on genealogy. Many libraries also have directories that give the names and addresses of local, State, regional, and national associations of genealogists, historians, and ethnic groups.
