Week 6 -Maps

The prompt for 52 Ancestors this week is maps. Maps can be a very useful tool for a family historian. As many of my ancestors settled in the Québec City area, I find the Cadastral map of Québec City Region 1709, very interesting.

I know that my 9th great-grandfather Noël Langlois received a land grant in the Beauport area. It would have been earlier than 1709 but there are a couple Langlois plots on map so I will have to do a bit more research when I have more time.

Here is an image of the map. Click here for a more detailed view on the website.
