Basement of the LDS Church, Colville
Our April meeting will be the first in this year's Map Series.  Lora Rose, NeWGS Evergreen Cemetery Chairman, will present the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection and demonstrate how to use it in your genealogical research.
 
David Rumsey's Maps is known as one of the largest private map collections in existence worldwide and contains over 50,000 maps and cartographic items.  David Rumsey began the collection by gathering 18th- and 19th century maps of North and South America because this was an era that "saw the rise of modern cartography."  He later expanded the collection to include maps from the 16th through 21st centuries, and covering the entire world.  There are now over 82,000 digitized maps available through his website, about 1000 of which are currently being hosted through Google Earth.
 
Because David Rumsey's Maps are available online, they are a valuable tool in the hands of a family historian.  You won't want to miss the chance to learn how to research locations around the world without leaving your house!
