Free webinars cover voting records, online mapping tools

Two free genealogy webinars are scheduled for this Wednesday, November 7.

Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “Using Voting and Election Records to Find Your Ancestor” at 2 p.m. Our ancestors voted in local, state and federal government elections. Many of our local, state and national archives, libraries and genealogical societies have election and voting records that could help genealogists find their ancestors. These records could include the polling places where your ancestor voted and even your ancestor’s signature.

Minnesota Genealogical Society will present “Using Free Online Services to Map Your Ancestors” at 8 p.m. See how to build interactive and attractive-looking maps of places our ancestors lived, which can provide additional insights about their lives. The webinar will introduce free, mostly online mapping services and show how to combine old maps from various timeframes, current maps, and location information (from gedcom files, grave databases, land owners registers, etc.).
