Geography and Father's Day

Happy Father's Day everyone. Twenty-six countries and two autonomous cities celebrate Father's Day during the year. Traditionally Father's Day has been held internationally on March 19, Saint Joseph’s Day, in honor of the step-father of the Holy Family.

My father enjoys genealogy and geography. So as I gift I am preparing an interactive map of our family's travels from England to the present day. I great tool I discovered is neogeography. The site Wayfaring allows one to tag places and then create connecting paths. So ordered lines connect each generation. Pretty cool.
