It is intriguing when I see something different from the typical family tree associated with genealogy. A Family Tree webinar entitled, “Pedigree Map – An Interactive Map of Your Family History,” I had to see what it was all about.

Here’s the description:

PedigreeMap™ is an innovative way to visualize your family history. PedigreeMap plots events from your family tree such as births, marriages, and deaths, as well as digital and scanned photos on an interactive world map.

Daniel Horowitz and Uri Gonen were the presenters, and they highlighted the various aspects of what was available and how to access the various features. It was interesting, basically because I love maps, plus it’s cool to see your family spread across a world map. Gives a new perspective to far-flung lands!

Unlike most Family Tree Webinars, the syllabus for this webinar is free to download. Usually the syllabus is only downloadable to Family Tree Webinar subscribers. So that was a nice perk.

mh-logoPedigree Maps is accessible through MyHeritage, which I have never used. I’m curious if there’s anyone who has used this feature of MyHeritage. Maybe I’ll have to give them a try.

If you use MyHeritage, watching this webinar may help you quickly learn to use Pedigree Map. You might also want to check out the other two webinars about MyHeritage: “Book Matching Technology at MyHeritage” or “7 Unique Technologies for Genealogy Discoveries at MyHeritage“.
