Location, Location, Location: Historical Maps in Genealogy Research
Wednesday, 16 November 2022, 7:30 PM ET
MEETING: Join from Home
Virtual doors open at 7:20 pm. ET.
Identifying the towns and villages where our ancestors used to live can be a critical step in finding relevant sources of genealogical information. Locating some of these places is often quite a challenging task, particularly in Central and Eastern Europe. Readily
available web-based resources can help to overcome many of those challenges.
This presentation demonstrates the methods and techniques of using such resources in order to enable correlating from multiple data sources and facilitate locating ancestral towns in Central and Eastern Europe.
Our presenter, Ed Mitukiewicz, has a particular weakness for historical maps; he has presented illustrative scenarios of using historical maps in genealogical at a number of genealogy conferences in Poland, Israel and USA.
