Time Travel with Google Earth at Our April Meeting!

We all have them -- the non-genealogists in our families who just roll their eyes when we talk about our family history discoveries. At our April meeting, Tuesday, April 14, we will learn one way we can get those family members to appreciate what we already know. Using the free Google Earth program online, our speaker will show us how to create time travel experiences that will attract everyone's interest.

Lisa Louise Cooke, our April speaker invites us to "get ready to experience old historic maps, genealogical records, images, and videos, coming together to create stunning time travel experiences...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 have never seen anything like this class."

Lisa Louise is the owner of  Genealogy Gems, a genealogy and family history multi-media company. Through this company, Lisa Louise produces her very popular Genealogy Gems podcast, an online audio genealogy show that is heard in 75 countries around the world. She is also the author of the Genealogy Gems website and blog, 4 books ( Turn Your iPad into a Genealogy Powerhouse, How to Find Your Family History in Newspapers, The Genealogist's Google Toolbox, and Genealogy Gems: Ultimate Research Strategy), and a video series, Google Earth for Genealogists. When she is not online, she is a very dynamic and popular speaker at conferences, seminars, and genealogical societies, worldwide. While she is achieving all this, she is proud of her loving role as a wife, mother, and grandmother! 

Lisa Louise will be joining us prior to her appearance at the NERGC conference in Providence, RI, which is scheduled to begin the day after our meeting. 

If you have never heard, nor seen, Lisa Louise, you will not want to miss this wonderful opportunity. Join us at the Brewster Ladies Library, Tuesday, April 14, at 10 AM.

She will also have available for purchase copies of some of her publications.

Please note the day change for this month only!! -- It will be on TUESDAY! - APRIL 14,  to avoid a conflict with the NERGC conference.
