Guest Speaker:  Miles Meyer
Topic: "Mapping Your Roots –– Adding Maps to Your Analysis"
 
Description:  This presentation will explore some of the sources for historic maps as well as the tools that can be used  to build your own maps for your communities. Mr. Meyer will demonstrate how to import map images (pdf, jpg, etc.) into Google Earth so you can overlay historic information on current satellite imagery. Additionally, spreadsheets can be used to import information from records, such as the census, into Google Maps. Timelines can be used to map the movements of your ancestors within a town or across the globe. And, your photos can be added to Google StreetView to produce mosaics of the hstoric community. These projects can add a context to your research that increases interest and provides inspiration.
