My 1880 Residence Chart

This chart is a slightly different take on a pedigree chart back to my third and fourth great grandparents. There are no names on it. Instead the location where that person was living in 1880 has replaced their name. Most of these are based on the 1880 US census enumeration except for those ancestors who were living outside the United States. Those who were living in the same household were circled. To help retain some sense of geography, color was used.

Census years are easier to use for charts of this type, but there’s no reason to limit yourself to those years. Just try and make certain you really know where the person was living at that point in time.
