"Utilizing Historic Maps & Documents in a Modern Geographic Information System

Maps are often a neglected resource for use in family history research. They may be used to learn where ancestors lived and worked, who their neighbors were, where nearby churches and schools were located, and where the nearest county courthouse was located. Maps can be an important contributor to success in finding elusive ancestors. This presentation will review some basic facts about mapmaking in the United States, examine several types of paper maps useful for finding ancestors, and explore the exciting new technological possibilities offered by geographic information systems (GIS).
