GSMC June activities

Please join us:
June 3th for Webinar Wednesday at the GSMC library 2-4pm
Using Googe Earth for Genealogy
Presenter: Lisa Louise Cooke
In this extremely popular class Google Earth guru Lisa Louise Cooke will teach you how to unlock mysteries in your research: from unidentified photographs, to how an ancestral location looked a hundred years ago or more, to plotting homesteads precisely using land patent legal descriptions. You'll learn how to interpret the genealogical records you already have in new and exciting ways using layers, overlays, forensic analysis and little known online tech tools. You will be amazed to discover that Gooogle Earth is one of the best free genealogical tools available!
