Our latest innovation to help you find an ancestor's property and watch the landscape change over time has now been enhanced by the addition of georeferenced Colour Tithe Maps. So now you can view exactly where your ancestor lived or worked on a modern day map. We're also releasing colour tithe maps for Cumberland - you can search these as normal or browse them on Map Explorer™.

The colour maps now available on MapExplorer™ cover the counties of Warwickshire, Rutland, Huntingdonshire, Buckinghamshire, Middlesex, Northumberland, Surrey, Westmorland, York City, North and East Ridings of Yorkshire along with the newly launched Cumberland.
