Today Sue had organised Jeffery Madsen to give a talk on, Creating Maps in Family Stories.
While I haven't used maps in stories, they are something I use frequently. He explained what a map was, why we would use a map and what is the map showing the reader. Jeffery also explained that by using different types of maps, the reader is able to see the location of a particular place.
Sources of maps, copyright and attribution were also covered. We were then given a lesson in how to put maps into our word document. How to manipulate them and how to organise the text. Something for me to play with.
It was a very useful and informative talk, from a gentleman, who loves maps.
A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
