The German Interest Group of The Eastside GenealogicalSociety (EGS)meeting
When: Friday, June 3, 2022 from 12:30 to 2:30 pm PT (Virtually)
Topic: “Mapping: Genealogy and Data Visualization, how to “see” your research roadblock with new eyes”
Come learn how to use maps and data visualization to better understand research obstacles and discover new strategies to answer those difficult questions. A case study will demonstrate how different “mapping” types can be employed to solve smaller data problems which are not readily visible. Sometimes, the problem is right in front of our eyes, and we can’t see it, because we don’t know to look for it. While this class is foundational, it may yield some new insights on how to look at a genealogical problem differently.
