Migration Mapping Experiment


Bryan is experimenting with presentations of migration mapping. It is a great visual tool. Bryan’s email to me:


Howard -


I have been trying to find a way to document how the 1850 census records are connected to various family lines.  I also want to describe the underlying migration patterns, which I think are key to the Knickerbocker story.


It took me several attempts before I came up with something that I like.  In the end, I decided that I needed to draw some maps.


I have attached a small example.


So far, this covers only two lines (the Madison County Knickerbockers, and the sons of Hugh and Rachel Schram.)  These two lines account for 20 heads-of-household for 1850.  


If I have done this right, you should be able to easily understand my basis for assigning these 20 households into the larger Knickerbocker puzzle.


Now that I know what I'm doing, I can easily document about 20 heads of households per day.


What do you think of the format?
