Organizing Wonder: Using Maps in Family History Research
Topic: Organizing Wonder: Using Maps in Family History Research
Speaker: Melinda Kashuba, Shasta College
Date & Time: Saturday, April 12, 2:00 p.m.
From sixteenth century maps depicting the location of Irish clans to maps of DNA test results showing ancient migration patterns, family historians use maps in many ways to tell the story of their ancestries. No longer content to use maps for reference, modern genealogists create maps using a variety of software products and social media to research and share their ancestries. Join Melinda Kashuba and explore the wide range of maps family historians employ to research and document their families’ story. You may be inspired to start mapping your own family's journey.
After the lecture, the presenter will offer an informal discussion with interested audience members.
