Bowling Green, Ohio - *My* Hometown
Please visit.... Bowling Green, The Crystal City
The panoramic map was a popular cartographic form used to depict U.S. and Canadian cities and towns during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Known also as bird's-eye views, perspective maps, and aero views, panoramic maps are nonphotographic representations of cities portrayed as if viewed from above at an oblique angle. Although not generally drawn to scale, they show street patterns, individual buildings, and major landscape features in perspective.
To be able to view the image of the bird's-eye view of Bowling Green I am
going to have to direct you away from this website to the website for the Library of Congress
Panoramic Maps Collection. Once there, you can either view the
Panoramic Map of Bowling Green
or download the map to your computer to view at your leisure. I will say this, it is much easier to
navigate around the map if you download it. You aren't limited to the small window size of the
image like you are on the Library of Congress website. To download the map you will also need
to download a software program known as
made available through the Library of Congress. It is well worth the effort!!! You will be able to ZOOM right in
on any part of the image you want. It's pretty neat.
The information I gather for our Family Tree is constantly changing. As much as I try, it is hard to keep the tree
that is on this website up to date. The up-to-date version of our Family Tree is online at www.Ancestry.com. With the resources I
have available to me at Ancestry.com, I have been able to do a much more thorough documentation of our family lineage. If you are a
relative I know and if you are not a member of Ancestry.com all you have to do is let me know and I can invite you to view our
family tree through email. You will need to sign up for a free membership once I invite you.

It would be impossible to thank all the people who like myself, have been researching our families lineages and have shared information making it possible to be able to put together this website. My Aunt Olive, Olive (Lewis) Todd. Aunt Olive has shared pictures with me and gave me enough information that I was able to do all of this. Without her memories, I would never have known where to begin on our Lewis family. Thank you Shirley Dunn and Gary Russell for helping me over one of my hurdles. Both Gary and Shirley are distant cousins from the Van Buskirk family. The same to Harry Biesecker from Gibson, PA for taking the time to go to the Gibson Cemetery and taking pictures of tombstones of family members for me. Also, Kate Johnson who helped steer me in the right direction on my Criswell line. Another shout out and thank you goes to Jim Snow who traveled around ceneteries in Edgerton, Ohio to take pictures of several family tombstones for me... I also have to thank my Uncle Stan and cousins, Marlene (Brown) Turner and Myrna Criswell for sharing pictures with me. The pictures mean so much to me. Most importantly, none of this would have been possible without Hank Priebe, the love of my life. Thanks for processing my pictures, cleaning up my images, retreiving what I've lost and etc., etc., etc.....

Read my DreamBook guestbook!
I am not at all impressed with how DreamBook has changed the way that they
reroute the visitors from this website to their website if you sign "my" guest book. I have
decided to search for another guest book service and disable the "sign" this DreamBook feature
I have. If you would like to reach me, there is an email address on the "Index Page" in the
"Family Tree" section of this website.
