Finding the Obscure and the Ellusive: Geographic Information on the Web
To locate an ancestor, you need to know a name, a date and a place. Even if you know a name and date, finding that ancestor can be a frustrating experience when the location of an event is very elusive or no longer in existence. Fortunately, new online map tools, plus time-proven research techniques, can help you find almost any geographic location in the world. This presentation will teach you the geographic tools, techniques and search methods to find those obscure and elusive locations and in many cases, how to view photographs of the locations on your computer.
