It simply describes the location with no option to move. Can someone help with this? Thanks.

How wonderful.

I think this is a great idea, it puts the everything into place. for instance I did not know that Horton in Bradford was almost at city centre incredible since I grew up there. a question though is it possible to add the maps to certain members of the family tree I think it would be a great addition to the information for future generations thanks

It put the map pin for Custer Township, Beadle County, South Dakota, somewhere northwest of Pierre in Hughes County–about 120-130 miles off.

I, too, would like to see a utility to plot the legal description of the land.

It seems to have trouble locating things though. I clicked to find one that had city, county, state, and it could only find the city library (tho the map showed city, county and state). It didn’t recognize one place b/c of a comma before the county.
I’d like a way to center the map pin I’m looking at and zoom in and out keeping it centered, rather than having to navigate up and down and back and forth trying to find the pin after I zoom in.
I too would like to be able to find land according to the deed description.
