ANNOUNCING THE TWELFTH

ST. TAMMANY GENEALOGICAL
SOCIETY WEBINAR –

JUNE 11, 2022 – ONLINE!


Using Cadastral Maps to

Enhance Family History

with Bert Oulaw


A cadastral map is a type of boundary map that shows parcels of land and who owns the land. This presentation will describe cadastral maps, how to use them to locate ancestors, and where to find these maps. Various examples of maps from websites, courthouses, and archives will be shown, some created pre-1800. The presentation will also include a demonstration of how cadastral maps can be used in conjunction with Google Earth, city directories, and Sanborn maps to learn more about the whereabouts and land ownership of your ancestors.

Bert Outlaw is a genealogist with over twelve years of research experience who has lectured for several local genealogical societies in Florida and Alabama. He is the current president of the Aaron Snowden Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution and a former president of the West Florida Genealogy Society. Prior to retirement, Bert worked as a commercial pilot for the Louisiana oil industry, taught high school, and was employed as a pilot instructor for Lockheed Martin. Bert has served as an officer in both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Navy. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and master degrees in both Aeronautical Science and Sports Science. Bert is currently engaged in writing a narrative version of his family’s history.
