If you're looking at a profile, you can click on the Family Tree & Tools tab, scroll down to Location maps, and then click on the X's ancestors or X's descendants links to get a map. The map shows the births (red dots) and deaths (blue dots) of ancestors/descendants. You can zoom in to see the names associated with each dot. You can also select 'Migrations' in the Control panel on the left, to see the lines connecting birth and death dots of individuals. Does that help?
