Hi Donna, Thanks for your input! I need to get a couple of maps to "Map" out the properties my Gilmores, Cockerhams and related families owned pre-Civil War. I had ordered one for Winnfield West and WInnfield East and they were the wrong maps. I needed two that are next to those, isn't that just the way things happen?

I take 7 1/2 minute quad maps and plot out the land purchases, then outline them with color pencils... out to the side I have a "Map Key', so that I and other family members/friends can see exactly where they lived, and where modern roads are. It's a big hit at Family Reunions! I love when people come up and say "Yes that's the Stephens old place and "insert name" owns that place now!" It really brings it all to life.

I can't wait to get the new maps and this info down on them!

Thanks again!

Lisa
