German Interest Group of The Eastside Genealogical Society (EGS)meeting

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.

Presenter:  Annette Adams

As a native German from Hamburg, Annette takes immense interest in German genealogy, emigration, and consulting others in discovering their German heritage. She is also currently a genealogy student at Brigham Young University Idaho and worked as a German and French research reference consultant with the German Slavic research team at the Salt Lake City, Family History Library.
