Hand-Drawn Maps Of London: Genealogical Map

As our exhibition of hand-drawn maps continues at Museum of London, we're still delighted every time someone sends a new one in. We're hoping to line up a second exhibition at a different venue next year, so please do get scribbling if you'd like to be considered.

Judith Gibbons sends us a highly original, and personalised, take on London, mapping her ancestors:

I have been researching my family history for about 10 years now and found that a lot of my mother's family lived in London, but many of them came from other areas of the country in the 18th and 19th centuries. I wanted to produce a map showing this and so this is what I've done!
