GeniAus - #AtoZChallenge - W is for Where

During April 2020 the month of this #AtoZChallenge I will be sharing short posts on some of the 2,000+ descendants I have identified of my 3x Great-Grandmother, Elizabeth Phipps

Elizabeth Phipps 1785-1869 was a convict who was transported from England to New South Wales in 1814 per Wanstead

Where are Elizabeth's Descendants? Where have they been?

I played around with the places data in my family history program and exported a list of the places where Elizabeth's descendants have lived, worked and died. This is by no means a comprehensive list but is representative of the names in my database.

Take a look at the map I created below with the My Maps feature from Google Maps. You can move the map around and maximise and minimise any area that you wish. There are many ways you can use Google Maps to display family history data. Why not give it a go?

If you have any Phipps places to add to the map please contact me and I will do so.

I love to connect with cousins and fellow researchers. Should you find any errors in my post or have additional information please contact me.

That's really neat! I never knew Google Maps had that feature.

I hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during this difficult time.

Great idea for the use of maps! I did something similar when I did A to Z posts on places where my ancestors lived. It’s an interesting and fun project!

Thanks for this idea, I've been wondering what I could use to show my places on a map. I know what I'll be doing this afternoon.
