Show – don’t tell!!

Replace lengthy descriptions of places with a simple map and improve your family stories. Using maps will give a sense of place and the setting of your family story. Maps can show the family’s position in the world, their local environment and the path of their travels.

Learn about maps using different content, sources of maps for you to use and displaying your ancestors lives using Google Maps that can then be shared with others.

NB This event was advertised in the printed program as Sat 13 April 12.30pm-12.30pm, but had to be rescheduled due to the presenter's other commitments.
