Our next meeting

Class (1:00 pm)

Revisiting Google Maps

Presented by: Gregg Legutki

We all have an idea what Google Maps can do - get us from here to there. But there are a few other features you might not know about. This session will review some old features, show off some new features, and practice posting pins to your locations in Poland (or anyplace else) on a PGS-CA group constructed map. The session will also show examples of other ways Google Maps can be used to place-mark previously owned land, locations of family groups, genealogy trip planning, and a few other random maps of interest.

Meeting (2:30 pm)

History Pin

Presented by: Gregg Legutki

History Pin (https://www.historypin.org) is a web site that we are revisiting from a presentation a while back. The basic premise for History Pin is to find a picture of what it looked like before - or post one of our own "classic pictures from the past" to share with others. Many of us have a picture of an old homestead that may have changed over the years, or may have completely disappeared. This is also a great site to post cemetery monuments that you may have found in the past, so others can see what they are looking for. The possibilities are endless. In this session, participants will receive some basic training on what the site does, then instruction on how to upload a copy of their "classic picture."

Meetings are the fourth Saturday of:

January, March, May, July, September, and November.
