Release Notes

This major release introduces a significant new feature the ability to search the UK Ordnance Survey 50k Gazetteer for small placenames that often don't appear on a modern Google Map. This means significant numbers of locations that were previously not found by Google Geocoding will now be found by using OS Geocoding.

In addition I've added support for loading the Scottish 1930 Parish boundary maps, whilst slightly different from the parish boundaries in use in the 1800s that are familiar to family historians most rural areas have almost the same if not identical boundaries in the 1800s as is in the 1930s Parish boundary set. The major variances in in the cities where several smaller parishes are amalgamated into one large parish ie: Glasgow has one large city centre parish rather than several smaller ones.

Being able to see your Scottish Ancestor's Locations plotted on a map complete with parish boundaries makes it easier to see how close they were to other neighbouring parishes.

NB. To use this feature you need the separate Parish Boundary file/url. Simply download it and unzip it into the folder you selected from the Tools | Mapping Options form.
