ISGS Webinar Logo-Small for Webinar Branding

Want to know how to travel virtually to where your ancestors lived? Then join us on January 13, when Lisa Louise Cooke will share her secrets in her presentation Using Google Earth for Genealogy.

Date: Tuesday, January 13, 2014, 8:00 pm Central

Description: In 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, and be amazed to discover that Google Earth is one of the best free genealogical tools available!
