Family History Today:  Location, Location, Location - Historical Maps in Genealogy Research

Wednesday, March 17 at 4 PM Eastern Time

Presented by the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at the Center for Jewish History


Answering the question "where do my ancestors come from?" is key to understanding their history and traditions. However, identifying and locating the places where they lived, particularly in Eastern Europe, is often a tricky task. In this lecture, Ed Mitukiewicz, map consultant for the documentary film Raise the Roof, will demonstrate how you can use historical map websites and geographic information databases to overcome these challenges.
