Upcoming Monthly Program
May General Monthly Meeting (Virtual)
Wednesday, May 25, 2022 / 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.
Featuring Guest Speaker: Miles Meyer
Description: This presentation will explore some of the sources for historic maps as well as the tools that can be used to build your own maps for your communities. Mr. Meyer will demonstrate how to import images (pdf, jpf, etc.) into Google Earth so you can overlay historic information on current satellite imagery. Addtionally, spreadsheets can be used to import information from records, such as the census, into Google Maps. Timelines can be used to map the movements of your ancestors within a town or across the globe. And, your photos can be added to Google StreetView to produce mosaics of the historic community. These projects can add a context to your research that increases interest and provides inspiration.
Presenter Info: Miles Meyer is a scientist by training and has been active in genealogy for over 25 years in a variety of ways. His expertise revolves around new technologies, internet research and FamilySearch. He is a Family History Consultant and current Director of the Vero Beach Family History Center.
