Added Maps

14 October 2011 Leave a comment

I have added a maps section to let others see/use the maps I have created for genealogy.

The first one focuses on Philadelphia. When I was researching my Donaghy, Cassidy, and McPeak families, so many of the addresses no longer existed. It was pretty clear where an address like “416 N 23rd Street” would be in the grid system, but it was also pretty clear that that address no longer existed. So, with the help of a railroad map and directories, I tried to reconstruct the area around the current Philadelphia Art Museum. See the Spring Garden, 1858 map.

The second one is not completed, but part of it is. It’s a map of the Moores who were enumerated as living in New York state in early censuses. Right now, it has the 1790 census and a few other pieces of information. My plan is to also do the 1800, 1810, 1820, and 1830 federal censuses. See the Moores in New York Censuses map.

Look into Quirin records in Pisdorf. While seem to have still been living in Wolfskirchen, had marriages in Pisdorf.
ex: Pisdorf BMS 1698-1896, 3 E 376/3, p 193, marriage of Joh. Jacob Quirin (son of Joh Jacob Quirin) and Anna Maria.
Annette Kunselman Burgert mentions marriage of Anna Elizabetha, daughter of Jacob Quirin to Georg Friedrich Stroh on 7 May 1737 in Pisdorf (C18th Emigrants: Northern Alsace, p 494)
