I was just exploring custom Google Maps, and because I have all the time in the world… I have created a map to track our ancestors. I plan to add their residences, business, burial sites and travels.
To view the progress of the map, keep an eye on our Map Page right here on the web site.
While this is going to be great for tracking exact spots, I am not quite sure how I am going to add information to a generic town – such as ‘Born in Eastham, MA’ My Initial thinking is to just add a marker at the center of town but, this may become a bit messy. We will see as time goes on.
