Wednesday - Using Google Earth for Genealogy by Lisa Louise Cooke

Lcooke-100In this extremely popular class Google Earth Guru Lisa Louise Cooke will teach you how to unlock mysteries in your research: from unidentified photographs, to how an ancestral location looked a hundred years ago or more, to plotting homesteads precisely using land patent legal descriptions. You’ll learn how to interpret the genealogical records you already have in new and exciting ways using layers, overlays, forensic analysis, and little known online tech tools. You will be amazed to discover that Google Earth is one of the best free genealogical tools available!
