    How to use the map

    This interactive map shows the geographic distribution of place names for people listed in the database. Different demographic events (e.g. birth, marriage, death) and place types can be viewed either separately or in total by selecting items on the bottom menu.

    Surname Trees
    The default setting is All Trees, which includes all the data. You can restrict this to Prussian, Dutch/Frisian or British Briese records via the drop-down menu
    Map Options
    The heatmap options shows concentrations of events, while selecting clusters and pins shows actual locations. By zooming in you can see the distribution and actual locations in greater detail.
    Place List
    This displays the list of place names currently located on the map. The list can be ordered alphabetically either by the smallest locality name (i.e., town name, the county, etc.) or by the largest locality name (i.e., country, then state, etc.). This display can also be disabled to view a larger portion of the map.
    Years
    The default display shows all the data. You can choose an interval of years (30 equivalent to 1 generation, 40 or 50) and view how the distribution of the surname changes over time.
    Pins
    Clicking on a map pin or on a place name in the adjacent place list will generate an information box that summarizes the numbers of demographic events in that place. Clicking on the place name in that information box will open a page that provides place information and a list of events and individuals from that place.

    Happy exploring!
