Michelle writes in about her new blog Turning of Generations

and how much she enjoyed Lisa’s Google Earth presentation on at the recent Family History Expo in Mesa.  “I was so excited about it I went home and shared your tips with my husband who likes Google Earth but had NO IDEA what it could do.  The next time I go hunting for a homestead, I'm going to do it this way.  It's much easier than getting the old state highway maps that also show the township, range, info!  Plus like my hubby pointed out, it would be much more comforting when we are out in the backcountry after riding down 20 miles of dirt roads to have that visual to tell us that yes, we ARE on the right track.”


“As always, I'm looking forward to what wonderful new adventures you will be taking us listeners on in your upcoming podcasts.  You are a treasure chest of information!”


Stay tuned for the release of Lisa’s new Google Earth for Genealogy DVD.
