Over the years I have acquired numerous maps of Switzerland as I searched for my Kagi-Kagy-Kagey ancestral homeland. I started with Michelin maps of Switzerland as a whole and its northern region, then acquired Kummerly + Frey maps of Canton Zurich as I focused in on the most relevant areas. So I wanted to share my latest find, Hallwag's mountainbike map of Zurcher Oberland (Zurich Highlands), the area southeast of Zurich city which contains most of the Kagi ancestral localities.
In particular, the roughly equilateral triangle formed by Bauma, Baretswil and Fischenthal (the heart of Kagi territory as described in my earlier posts below) has sides of about four inches each on this map, showing the most detail I've seen. The scale is 1 : 50,000. The best previous scale (the Zurich canton maps) was 1 : 60,000. This new Hallwag map is available from swisstravelcenter.ch and is plastic coated for outdoor use so it should prove more durable than many paper maps that tend to fray along the folds.
