Geography is Three-Dimensional

"Low is south and high is north." It was the essence of a misunderstanding another genealogist and I had. I referred to my "low-German" ancestors and she thought they lived in the southern part of Germany, perhaps because that was "lower" on the map. In this case, the "lower" part of Germany is near the sea.

Are you interpreting things correctly?

And remember, geography is three dimensional.
