The Map Interface

The map interface is a web-portal that allows the user to explore the movements of 20,000 Moravians from place of birth to place of final rest from 1750 to the present day. The map visualizes the metadata that contains information about place and date, of birth and death, information about gender and sometimes other information concerning the Lebensläufe. This data sits in digital form in the Moravian Archives in Herrnhut, Germany and in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Searches can be filtered by gender, time period, and name. Users may also drill down to individual records by clicking on the points on the map. Future build outs of the interface will allow users to access original records, contemporary images of people and places, and further contextual materials.
