The Connecticut Society of Genealogists, Inc. presents
“Map Magic for Genealogists” with Sara E. Campbell
Learning more about the places our ancestors lived can help put their lives in perspective. Correlating maps with other records of the time period helps us find details that might not have been uncovered otherwise. We will talk about the history of map-making, categories of maps that can be used in our research, and where to find the historic maps. Recent trends in digitation have made historic maps easier to access, but we still need to dig into our repositories. We will take a deep dive into some local maps, and talk about how to look beyond the obvious sources.
Sara E. Campbell brings her engineering training into solving genealogical problems. A member of her local Historical Society in Erving, MA, she has brought genealogy programs into the local schools. Sara has self-published and edited family history books, and garnered writing awards in the journal of the Mass. Society of Genealogists MASSOG, and contributed three profiles to the NEHGS “Western Massachusetts Families in 1790, Volume 4.” She is a frequent lecturer at regional conferences, societies, and libraries.
