At the GSV Writers Circle we often talk about the need to provide more description of the places our family members lived and worked. Many of us feel the need to travel to far-flung parts of the globe to tread 'in their shoes' through their villages and fields. 


The online world has helped bring a lot of this to our 'armchairs' and certainly Google Earth provides a lot of interesting opportunities for our research.


This month's VIDEO 'How to use Google Earth for Genealogy' will give you lots of tips for your research.


It will be shown this coming THURSDAY 29 AUGUST from 12 noon to  - 1.00 pm at the GSV Centre. You can book - if you are quick - on our website under Events or phone 03 9662 4455. Only $5 for members ($20 non-members).


It is produced by Lisa Louise Cooke. She writes that she found her passion for family history at her grandmother’s knee at the age of 8 and is now the owner of Genealogy Gems, a genealogy and family history multi-media company founded in 2007. Lisa produces videos and podcasts featuring genealogy news, research strategies, expert interviews and inspiration for genealogists in 75 countries around the world, and she recently celebrated 2.5 million downloads!

Our September video is 'Ten Tech Tools you can't live Without.'
