The map is intended to display where the deceased descendants of Rocho Waskowiak (1745-1805) and his wife Eva Kleczkowczyk lived over time. All of the couple's great grandchildren who lived moved to the LaSalle-Peru area in Illinois in the late 1800s. For those six great grandchildren and their descendants, the pop-up window for each will be color-coded based on which great-grandchild the family has descended from. The color code is as follows: John-green, Frank-purple, Joseph-blue, Paul-orange, Mary-yellow, and Anton-pink. Not all of the descendants have been added to the map and will be added over time.
To see where people lived during a specific time period, pull the sliders to display a specific time period. To show all locations, pull the left slider all the way to the left leaving the right slider at the current year. The icons are color-coded by decade.
