Every genealogist knows some level of information about maps and geography. However, we often have vague ideas of where these places are located, but we don't know exactly where everything took place. Without this information we miss valuable clues for research and insight into our ancestors' everyday lives. In this class, we will outline a strategy for putting all of your research on a map and show you how you can use it to unlock all kinds of secrets about your family.
