The time lapse map is >from Centennia Historical Atlas software. There are ways to look at particular regions
over time rather than a huge overview of all of Europe. I bought this
software a few years ago when I first started doing genealogy, because I
knew nothing about European history and didn't know, for example, what
the Holy Roman Empire was, when it operated, how it changed, and when it
dissolved. There is a feature of the software that tells you what
historical events were occurring at a each point in time as the borders
changed. You can manually step through the border changes, as well. If
I'm remembering it correctly, you can take snapshots of maps and save
them, which can be nice if you want to include them in your family
history documents.

I don't have any connection to the company, other than as a customer.
