How to Locate Your Ancestor’s Property or Residence On a Map

Melinda Kashuba’s presentation covers the many ways genealogists use maps to assist in their research. Maps aren’t just about locating and identifying ancestral locations. They also suggest where to look for records. Maps are amazing representations that communicate the distance and relationship between places and help us visualize what our ancestors saw out their front doors.  The true power of maps lies in their ability to organize information about people and events and analyze the results of our research. 

Melinda's book, Walking With Your Ancestors, is available in our library.
