The Eastside Genealogical Society will meet on Thursday, January 12, 2017 in the Bellevue Regional Library (Room 1), 1111 – 110th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98004 at 7 pm, with doors opening at 6:45 pm for networking.
Topic: “Maps and Genealogy”
Genealogists have many tools to describe what our ancestors did. Maps allow us to describe where they did it. This presentation will demonstrate how to build a custom ancestral map in Google Earth. Resources to build a custom map, like the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries and U.S. Geological Survey, will be discussed. Other online mapping resources, some directly applicable to Google Earth and some not, will also be discussed.
Presenter: Joe Flint
Joe has been doing Genealogy for about 16 years. He is a retired computer programmer and has a Bachelor degree in History from the University of Washington. (Go Dawgs!) He has been fascinated with maps since childhood and is eager to share the wonders of Maps and Genealogy.
