Historical Atlas of My Family Lineage

This historical atlas isn’t technically a historical atlas, but that is what my family has always called it. I was born and raised in the United States, with no language ties to Montenegro. However, my father and his whole family are from Montenegro and have drawn maps and recorded the family history for centuries. The first record is from around the 1450s. My family lineage drew the maps to show the regions that each generation lived in and show the family’s movement. The maps may not be the most geographically sound and detailed, yet, they provide enough context for the family to add to them. The book is filled with lists that use the maps to provide the context for each reader. This atlas isn’t necessarily connected to the United States or its international relations; however, I thought it would be interesting to share a family or personal atlas with the FYS 100 class. In a way, as a first-generation Miljanic to be American, the atlas is now connected to the United States.
