How to see all ZIP Code boundaries on Google Maps

After the great response to my County Lines on Google Maps tool (here: https://www.randymajors.com/p/countygmap.html), I've heard a number of suggestions for other types of boundaries that Google Maps doesn't show. One that has come up a number of times is for ZIP Codes.

Yes, you can see one ZIP Code boundary at a time on Google Maps desktop version, but that's of limited use if you're trying to see all of the ZIP Codes in an area and don't know what they are (for example, it's not intuitive how to get Google Maps to show the ZIP Code boundary for the place adjacent to the current ZIP Code you're viewing).

So I've created another free tool that shows ZIP Code boundaries on Google Maps here: https://www.randymajors.com/p/zipcodegmap.html

Are you aware of this problem with the "Place" filter in Ancestry.com's Search Forms? It could be one reason you're unable to find your ancestor in some record collections. Here's an explanation and a solution to try. Hope it helps!
