Using Google Maps
Since Google Maps™ mapping service was first introduced in 2005, most of us have used it to find our way to a restaurant, venue or on vacation. You can also use Google Maps for genealogy, as Mary will demonstrate in this presentation:
- Visualize locations of ancestors to help you find their records
- Track ancestors’ movements and migration patterns
- Support FAN Club analysis by plotting people’s places in proximity to one another and particularly to our ancestors
- Plan research-oriented travel
