An antique globe from the 1920s sat on my great-grandmother's desk next to a vintage typewriter and a leather-bound copy of Little Women. When I would visit, we would eat pimento cheese sandwiches and play a game in which I would spin the globe and put my finger down on a country, and she would tell me an interesting historical fact about that place. Those special experiences are what draw me to historical maps, and in this video presentation, Lisa Louise Cooke explains how to find online and integrate the digitized versions of these beautiful artifacts into your genealogy research—an essential course for every historyphile.
