Google Custom Searches with AncestorSearch

Randy Majors at has recently enhanced his AncestorSearch tool for enhancing Google searches in genealogy. He has two other useful tools for visualizing geographic boundaries. the Historical World Boundary Maps tool.

If you click on the countries shown, a pop-up gives you the name of the country and the approximate time it was in existence. Another interesting tool is the Historical U.S. County Boundary Map. It works like the Historical World Boundary Maps but is more focused on U.S. boundaries.

You can zoom in on both maps and see more detail.
