Project Places – Center of the Map

The chart below is part of what I have been working on that has taken me from blogging. I have been chart crazy lately. This is the start of my GPS/UTM chart for Wetzel County, West Virginia. The entries below are for Center District. I went into Google Drive and made a spreadsheet for Wetzel County, giving each district a tab. I am excited about this project.

If this experiment goes well I will be making a spreadsheet for all of the counties I research heavily in. I know this is a little OCD but I have found it very useful in getting a different perspective on my family history. My next major step is to make a map of the locations I have mapped out in Adobe and have Photoshop layers for plat maps, historic land changes and more. This will give me an opportunity to see beyond just GPS/UTM or plat maps. I hope someone finds this article helpful. If this inspires you to map out your family this way or in another way let me know in the comments below!
