I’ve completed first day of Advanced Land Records: Maps with Rick Sayre as the Coordinator. We also met our other instructors: Melinda Kashuba, Kimberly Powell, and Jerry Smith.
The morning was an overview of what our week will be, plus Rick gave us an introduction to mapping America and a lesson on land division.
After lunch we headed via bus to the Utah State Archives, where Melinda led a discussion about how to read maps and then we met in small groups to look at and analyze a few maps. Luckily we received a list of what to make notice of and to think about how the maps could help us genealogically.

It was much fun seeing the variety of Utah maps that the archives have in their collection. I really love hands on activities.Copyright © 2018 by Lisa Suzanne Gorrell, My Trails into the Past. All Rights Reserved.
