Attending genealogy webinars has become a weekly habit. Wednesday I attended Google Earth for Genealogy by Lisa Louise Cooke.

Lisa demonstrated using Google Earth to plot ancestral homesteads, identify old photographs, and create custom historic map overlays. This exciting tool brings your genealogy research into the 3D world.

Genealogy blog gems discovered this week:
