A “virtual” conference is an online event which you can attend from the comfort of your own home. If you haven’t attended one before the upcoming Fall Virtual Conference presented by Family Tree University September 14-16, 2012 is a great opportunity to get involved. It’s your chance to head back to school this Fall, gaining new research strategies, and brushing up on proven genealogical research techniques.

I’ve been an instructor since the first Virtual Conference, and this time around I am really jazzed to bring you some of the best websites for finding historic maps. I’m passionate about using Google Earth for genealogy, and creating historic map overlays is one of the techniques I teach in my Google Earth for Genealogy video series on CD. So I always have an eye out for great digitized historic maps available for free online, and I’ll be sharing my favorites in this 1/2 hour video class.
One of the things that really makes FTU’s Virtual Conference a stand out is that the classes are on video! This means you can download them to watch now, and later down the road. During the conference weekend there will also be “virtual exhibit booths” to visit and live chats to participate in.
As a presenter at the conference I have the opportunity to offer my listeners and readers a 20% savings on Family Tree University’s upcoming Fall Virtual Conference. Click here to Register and enter the coupon code FRIENDSOFLISACOOKE
You can get to know a little more about me and the Historic Maps class by reading the Q&A chat we did on the Family Tree Magazine Facebook fan page wall the other day.
See you in class!
