Beautiful aren’t they. Through the historical maps, this book shows the European continent and how national borders evolved during the 1700s, 1800s and early 1900s, when most genealogists’ European ancestors migrated.

The Appendix lists the administrative divisions by country for easy reference, which is an amazing work in inteself.
