Every ancestor, at every moment, occupied a specific, physical location. Maps decode and amplify the significance of those locations by providing context and background information. This heavily illustrated lecture shows examples of the map types best-suited to genealogy, and the syllabus provides links to quality online sources for those maps.

Presenter: Following a first career as a research librarian, manager and teacher, Sara A. Scribner, Certified Genealogist®, now owns Salt Lake-based Scribner Genealogy. Her articles have appeared in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and the Association of Professional Genealogists Quarterly. She has lectured on the local, regional and national level, most recently providing the 2017 Board for Certification of Genealogists’ Education Fund Lecture “Make Your Case: Constructing and Writing Proof Discussions.” She divides her own research activities between her mother’s side, deep south Confederates and her father’s long time New Brunswick descendants of Loyalists.
