I’m currently studying Google For The Wise Genealogist with the National Institute For Genealogical Studies.
Genealogical research is a satisfying pastime for the family historian and a rewarding occupation for the professional genealogist. To support the needs of both amateur family historians and aspiring professional genealogists for reliable and comprehensive education we have designed a series of courses (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Electives) leading to various Certificates in Genealogical Studies with specialization in various countries.
The National Institute for Genealogical Studies in affiliation with the Continuing Education, University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto provides web-based courses for both family historians and professional genealogists.
This week’s module is on Google Maps and Panoramio. This is a map I created, for my assignment, which shows the possible route my Buring ancestors took when they went from Berlin, Germany to Adelaide, South Australia. I know that the ship, the Princess Louise stopped at Rio de Janeiro on the way to Adelaide.

I never knew before that you could embed a Google map in a blog or website. Yay, I love maps, so you can expect to see a lot more maps in my blog.
