RootsTech 2019
Our booth at RootsTech was a hit. We had a lot of visitors, and we heard people saying things like..."I've been coming to RootsTech for years looking for something like this." and "I am really excited about this. I can't wait to tell ___ about this." We also had a kids activity for Family Day with Virtual Reality headsets and they loved it. We released the results of our poll and are going to start adding new data from those locations.

Shortcuts. Now you can easily browse the map to find museums, cemeteries, towns, and other useful information. When you are planning a genealogy trip this feature will help you find information at your fingertips. It will also help make browsing the map easier when you are doing research. You can find this feature on the home page of the app.

U.S. City Directories. * We are launching an exciting new effort to map entire city directories. Now you can see your ancestor in context of their neighbors. You can also see where various socio-economic or ethnic groups are distributed. The following directories are in progress: 1842 Cincinnati Ohio, 1855 Indianapolis Indiana, 1890 Colorado Springs Colorado, 1879 Colorado Springs Colorado.

Directory of U.S. Museums for Genealogists. We have hand-selected a list of museums that have some interest for local historians and genealogists. These are great ideas for places to visit for more research or context when you are on a road trip. Each marker you pick will show a nearby museum to that area that might have more discoveries for you. It also has a link to the website where you can find more information about hours and exhibits. The following states have been added with more coming soon: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

Plat Maps. * New atlases added include markers from Van Vechten's Map of Cook and DuPage Counties Illinois (1870), Brown and Nemaha Counties Kansas (1887), Henry County Illinois (1893), Cass County Illinois (1874)

Add Your Own Markers. Now you can add your own family to our collection of almost nine million other markers. Learn more about your ancestors' lives and share their stories with other researchers. Premium memberships allow you to analyze census records and locate your family simply by comparing neighbors with known land records and addresses in the area.

Track Your Location. No research trip will be the same again once you use Genealogy4D. Track your location along with all of your places you want to visit. Now it will be easy to find homes and cemeteries and other important places in your family's lives.

New Markers. In 2017 we added over three million new markers to Genealogy4D. We are expanding the data collection all the time. Many of your ancestors might already be on our maps waiting for you to find them.

Easier Filters. Now our filters are easier to use and more powerful too. Limit the markers by year and location. You can also limit to specific surnames to compare locations of multiple families.

Favorites. Add your own private comments to any marker. This will create a list of favorite markers that you can display for tracking your own research clues and places you want to visit.

County Boundary Changes. If you are not aware of boundary changes you might be missing valuable information hiding in another county. Our Boundary Changes feature makes it easy to view changes around every marker in the United States.

* NOTE: Some of these markers are only available to members. Others are free to the public.
