Lisa Louise Cooke is both an author and podcaster extraordinaire. She produces the
Genealogy Gems podcast, as well as the official podcast of Family Tree Magazine.
In this guest post, she writes an open letter to those considering coming to her sessions
for Family Tree University’s Fall Virtual Conference:
In the real estate world they say it’s all about Location, Location, Location! And
the same holds true in the Genealogy world. Location is a key element in understanding
the context of our ancestor’s lives and obtaining coveted genealogical documents.
What better way to zero in on a location than with maps? My class Best Websites
for Finding Historical Maps delivers the goods in a big way!
If you have ever listened to my show The Genealogy Gems Podcast at http://www.genealogygems.com then
you know that maps, and working with them in programs like Google Earth, is one of
my specialties. Historical maps offer an exciting way to do your own genealogical
time travel. Please join me in a map-packed half hour that will provide you the best
resources for obtaining FREE downloadable historical maps that will take you back
to the time, and place, of your ancestors. See you in class!
