Using Maps in Genealogical Research - Part 1  (Class)

Presented by Melinda Kashuba

Thursday, April 4

10:00 am to 12:00 pm (Virtual)

We will look at the many ways genealogists use maps in their research. There are multiple types of maps, which can be found in many ways; We will talk about the different collections available. The most useful map may not be a “map,” so we will also explore other means of searching a location.
