February 2020 D-OGS Meeting: Using Maps and Mapping Tools in Genealogy 

Wednesday, February 5, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Speaker Name: David McCorkle
It's great to find the exact location or at least general area where you ancestors lived on a modern map, but that alone is only part of the story. Please join us on Wednesday, February 5, at 7:00PM at the OWASA Community Center, 400 Jones Ferry Rd, Carrboro, NC to hear D-OGS President David McCorkle present Using Maps and Mapping Tools in Genealogy. In addition to helping find your ancestor's home, maps can provide clues to questions like where to find county and state records, who were their neighbors, what migration routes they used, why they might have settled in that area, what church they attended, where they are buried, what newspapers to search, and much more. David will discuss the many historical and modern maps available online, where to find them, and how to use them. He will also discuss and demonstrate various mapping tools that allow you to combine different types of maps and data to help with your research.

Location: OWASA Community Center
Address: 400 W. Jones Ferry Road, Carrboro
