Maps can help you locate where your ancestor lived and to understand the changes that occurred over the years in the area.  By understanding the geography of the area, you can develop a much better understanding of how they lived and worked.  The earliest maps drawn were usually for the county as a whole so very little detailed information is given on them.  But they were followed by a variety of more detailed maps.  If you are hoping to locate the property in which your ancestor spent his life, you need to look all available maps of the area.
