Ga Gen Society- Jan 20, 8:00 p.m. free webinar

 Wednesday,  January 20th, 8:00 p.m., The Georgia Genealogical Society features the free webinar: Unlocking the Past with Original and Early Landowner Maps- presented by Greg Boyd

Genealogists learn that many families cannot be found in census records and that many women get referred to only by their married name. They know that solving  mysteries means gathering clues and analyzing those clues until patterns appear and often, miraculously, discoveries are made. A favorite technique used by many is to analyze the friends, neighbors and associates of the research subject. makes this an easy task. It lays out, in a single-map, 12.5 million original U.S. landowners among 30 states. Frontier neighborhoods are mapped out for your immediate inspection and if your people are found in the areas HistoryGeo has mapped, you are off to the races. In this session, Greg will show both how to use the tool s that HistoryGeo offers and specifically how he has made multiple discoveries in his own research that would not have been feasibly possible any other way.
