Title Set up historical counties
Description With the new Map Location attachment functionality, the site is ready to organize the Historical County maps loaded a while ago.

Process has changed - now easier.

Go to the Map Image List screen - [Link]

Search for the state you are editing in the Name field - i.e. "NY Counties"

Start at the earliest date - right click and "Open in New Tab/Window"

If there is no Map Location already attached, you will need to find one appropriate for these dates and attach it - usually you can find one on the previous Map Location dates.

Click [Guess Attachments]

Click "Attach All"

Fix Geographic Coverage, eliminate dates from Name, delete Lat/Lon Boundaries.

Click "Save - Generate Map"

Close Tab/Window and move on to next date.
