Added Maps

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.
