At past UPGS conferences, attendees have been asked to identify the locations of their ancestral villages on a map. To start off the process this year, attendees are invited to have the locations of their ancestral villages entered on the map, below. To have your ancestral villages marked on the map, please post a comment to this article, and we’ll add the locations of your villages. Please be as specific as possible about the locations so we can mark the correct place (supplying both the name of the village and the name of the parish is usually sufficient to pinpoint the location).

UPDATE: This map was updated on 23 March 2008. Not all villages submitted are marked on this map. In some cases, the villages could not be located or, if the village name was a common one, the location of the correct village could not be determined. Errors and omissions can be corrected at UPGS 2008.
