May 17, 2011
Lisa Louise Cooke presents Google Earth for Genealogists. Google Earth is a 360-degree three-dimensional way to view your ancestor’s world! In this presentation, you will learn how to identify old photos, plot and virtually visit your ancestor's homestead, and incorporate historic maps.
Google Earth has the power to geographically document your ancestor’s lives, and lends itself very well to collaboration with other researchers. It’s one of the best online genealogical tools available, and best of all, it’s free!
