  • This custom module displays the location of events and the birthplace of ancestors on a map.

  • Location data is obtained directly from gedcom data, and may also be provided by other custom modules.

  • If you have collected non-GEDCOM location data via webtrees (Control panel > Map > Geographic data), activate the 'Vesta Webtrees Location Data Provider' custom module to make this data available.

  • Unzip the files and copy the contents of the modules_v4 folder to the respective folder of your webtrees installation. All related modules are included in the zip file.

  • Enable the main module via Control Panel -> Modules -> All modules -> ⚶ Vesta Places and Pedigree map.
