Utility ~ Toponymy Version 2


Toponymy is a tool to help you to identify where your ancestors came from, and to enter their place names and addresses easily and consistently into your family tree.

The information that comes with it as standard relates mainly to the British Isles in the 19th century. You can use it for places anywhere, but we won't be able to help you to find them. It can combine predefined information about historic and civil parishes with the place names and addresses in your GEDCOM, and with information you have added by hand.
