California: Using Maps, Feb. 10

Robert Sherins, M.D. will present "Using Maps in Genealogical Research," at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County, from 1-4pm, Sunday, February 10.

The meeting is co-sponsored with Temple Adat Elohim, in Thousand Oaks.

Basic to all genealogical research is identifying the precise location of ancestral towns. Dr. Sherins will review procedures for obtaining exact map coordinates, locating the smallest villages within countries where national borders have shifted, and the use of atlases and gazetteers. Also covered: guidelines for advanced research using internet resources for cadastral, panoramic-perspective maps, and satellite technology access.

A past board member of the Polish Genealogical Society of California, retired ophthalmologist and a well-informed map researcher, Sherins has made presentations before several genealogy societies and has published 100 articles in various internet publications, JGSLA RootsKey and the Bulletin of the Polish Genealogical Society of California.
