Free genealogy webinar to discuss National Map Corps

The Georgia Genealogical Society will present “The National Map Corps and Cemeteries” on Wednesday, July 26 at 8 p.m.

The mapping crowd-sourcing program, known as The National Map Corps (TNMCorps), encourages citizens to collect structures data by adding new features, removing obsolete points, and correcting existing data for The National Map, which includes the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) and the US Topo map series. Of the structure types available to edit, cemeteries may be of particular interest to genealogists. This webinar will give an overview of TNMCorps with a focus on verifying cemetery points.
