(Google) Mapping Your Way Out of a Genealogy Problem

An urban case study. Maps are an important genealogy resource, often shouldered aside in the rush to search censuses and vitals. But family researchers can find a wealth of clues in maps – and not just antique maps. Regular Google Maps can be a surprisingly powerful genealogical tool. To see how, follow along on a case study that has it all – an illegible marriage certificate, a totally overused surname and a church that burned down. Presented by genealogist Liz Haigney Lynch, creator of the Ancestral Archaeologist Blog. The presentation will be held in the lower level of Crane House & Historic YWCA, 108 Orange Road at 2 pm, with a suggested donation $5
