January 25, 2016: "Mapping your Family History”
Maps have always been an important tool in genealogical research, and new computer tools make maps even more useful in finding ancestors and understanding the worlds they lived in.  New websites and open source software now enable anyone to not only understand maps, but to create them for documenting research, and sharing results in visually interesting ways with family and friends.
