While planning my research trip to Melbourne, I noticed that Google Maps will allow you to import a list of addresses to plot. It’s amazing what you find when you take the trouble to click around the options.
A use for this feature immediately sprang to mind! While my time in Melbourne will be very limited and I’m not planning on making any cemetery visits, I would hate to realise later that I was only a few blocks away from one of my ancestors. I’d much rather drop in and say hello!
Creating a map was a quick and simple process.
Here’s the outcome. I haven’t tried to do anything too fancy. All I wanted was a marker at each cemetery in Victoria where any of my ancestors are buried.
Next post, I’ll tell you step by step how I did this with Family Historian and Google Maps.
