Where Did Grandpa Go? Using Maps to Solve Genealogical Problems. Our Speaker will be Ginger Frere.
Using case studies, Ginger Frere will demonstrate ways in which a wide variety of maps can be used to solve genealogical mysteries. Learn how to break down brick walls caused by boundary changes, look at migration paths, and find the exact location of where your ancestors lived.
