Description:
The goal of this category is to look for the original Old World (eg Europe) places which gave rise to major New World (eg Canadian) locations.

Expanded Description:
A waymark in this category qualifies when the Old World location may have given its name to a major New World place. "Major" could mean: World Famous, or population over 50,000. Examples would be Calgary in Mull, Scotland (which gave its name to Calgary in Canada) or Melbourne in Yorkshire, England (which gave its name to Melbourne in Australia).
Instructions for Posting a Old World Originals Waymark:
Waymarks can only be placed in this category if they are in the Old World eg Europe, Africa and Asia.

Please load up some pictures (at least two) which shows us the city. Any information you can give about the place (or its twin) would be good.

New World Locations (eg USA, Canada) cannot be logged in this category.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
