Using Maps in Genealogy: Another Layer to the StoryWhere are we located?
Maps can be valuable tools to help tell the story of your ancestors. Mapping out the location of their home, their church, their place of business, and even their final resting place, will help to tell the story of their day-to-day lives. Join us as we learn more about maps, including Sanborn Insurance Maps and using Google Earth in your research.
