  1. I would like to do something similar for surnames and variants in County Durham in the sixteenth century. Would you be willing to help me with the setting up of the mapping?


    1. Sorry, Ken but I don’t have any templates for Durham. The map in the piece above was drawn from an original parish template, which I altered to reflect C19th registration sub-district boundaries. So your first task is to find a decent large scale parish map template for Durham and then use gimp or other suitable photoshop software to manipulate the image and clean it up if necessary.
