Join us for a webinar on September 15 - Mapping Software for Genealogists

Mapsmall Join us for our first-ever live webinar on Wednesday, September 15, 2010 at 2:00PM EDT. The webinar, Mapping Software for Genealogists will cover essential software tools: AniMap (U.S. & Canada), Centennia (Europe & Middle East), and Map My Family Tree (entire world), and maybe even a Legacy Family Tree tip or two.

Registration is free but space is limited.


In this 30 minute webinar we'll cover the following topics:

1) AniMap software (U.S. & Canada): learn how to find the correct county for the time period, and perform radius searches (list all cemeteries/churches within 10 miles of a place). For 30 years a researcher looked in the records of Woodstock, Windham County, Connecticut for their ancestor who was born there in 1720. AniMap easily shows that in 1720, Woodstock would have been in Suffolk County, Massachusetts. Now we know the correct location to find the records for that time period. Brick wall problem solved.

2) Centennia software (Europe and Middle East): Have you ever wondered about the changing country borders in Europe? Have ancestors in Germany, Poland, or Prussia? Which is it? The Centennia Historical Atlas software shows the changing country borders from the 11th century to the present in Europe and the Middle East.

3) Map My Family Tree software (entire world): plot your ancestors on a map of the world, track family migrations, plot to Google Earth, use the time scroll bar to dynamically select which time period you want displayed on your map and more.

Sounds great but I work in the day time. How about one in the evenings (night)?

Bobby - I understand about the timing. With registrants, already, from all around the world, it was difficult planning the best time for everyone. There's also a chance that the webinar will be recorded for those who couldn't make it during the scheduled time.

I hope it will be recorded. I am keen, but not enough to get up at 4.00 am here in Melbourne, Australia.

I hope it's more than a chance that the webinar will be recorded. I, along with many other loyal Legacy users are not available at the scheduled time.

I happen to not be available that day but would love to see a taped version.

I agree Jennifer 4.00 am is crazy for all of us Australians - please try and make it available to view online

I don't get off work until 3:30pm EST. I would love to see a rerun! I have been trying to decide if I should get Ani Map.

I too hope it will be recorded since I will be at work at that time. I vote for an evening class!

I'm registered and look forward to joining the webinar. What is the latest version of Animap. I bought it some years ago, but never used it, because I didn't really find it much better than other gazeteers. Maybe I just wasn't using it correctly. Don't even know if I kept it.

By the way, shouldn't "webinar" rhyme with "seminar"? "We-BEE-nar" sounds really hokie.

Larry - the latest edition of Animap is 3.0.2.

Please tape to allow viewing if unable at 2:00 EDT (12:00 p.m. MDT) due to a previous engagement.

2:00PM EDT, Guess I ought to know where EDT is, but right now it is lost on me. Could you tell me which state has that time when you start? Then I will be able to figure out the time here. Or at what Arizona time does it start, that would work too.

Anne. It will be 11am Arizona time. EDT is eastern.

The afternoon is great for me this particular Wednesday. I agree with everyone that recording is a great idea. Maybe next time, the time won't be good for me. I use Animap and like it.
