Time Travel with Google Earth

UPDATE:  Google Earth for Genealogy now free on Lisa's website.

Mark your calendar - Tuesday November 18, 2014 - Time Travel with Google Earth

It may seem far away, but this is a Webinar not to be missed! Given by Lisa Louise Cooke, she will take you on a journey to the past and show you how you can enhance your ancestors stories.  Discover the possibilities!!

Webinar Description:  Get ready to experience old historic maps, genealogical records, images, and videos coming together to create stunning time travel experiences in the free Google Earth program. We'll incorporate automated changing boundaries, and uncover historic maps that are built right into Google Earth. Tell time travel stories that will truly excite your non-genealogist relatives! You’ve never seen anything like this class!

You may remember that I mentioned Lisa's Google webinars back in May in my article "You Are Here... X"

Webinar hosted by Wisconsin State Genealogical Society.

Go here to register NOW, so you don't forget. If something comes up you are not obliged to attend even if you register, but keep in mind it is on a first come first serve basis, and those who log in first will be admitted. The archived webinars are for members only.

You will receive a confirmation email, and another one probably the day before the event. 

Tip:  Use an online calendar to keep track of your events.
I use gmail and google calendar.  When I receive my confirmation emails, I click on the date in the email and it adds directly on to my google calendar, which is set to send me an alert the day before the event.
