I spent the better part of 3 hrs. playing in Google Maps creating a timeline for my great grandfather, David Fenton Marshall. It took awhile to do because 1) he was a travelling salesman so he moved around alot and 2) a lot of the places no longer exist (or they've been renamed). I was also using the street view (which I love), to get a closer look at the houses, which I've saved to post at a later date.
I wanted to embed the link in this post but it kept causing problems and shutting blogger down. Besides, it wouldn't show all the locations at once. So I saved two screen shots to show.
This first one shows just the map of all the locations where my great grandfather lived.
This second shot shows both the map and a list of the locations (minus the last one as it got cut off!)
