"The best kept secret in Genealogy?"

December 04, 2008  |  By JohnHope

 |  Version: Map My Ancestors 1.3

Pros

Straight forward to use.
Utilises existing mapping programs such as Google Earth
Allows easy sharing of interactive maps (the recipient doesn't need a Family Tree program - just Google Earth or even just a browser with Google maps

Cons

Doesn't read native file formats - you need to first export to a GEDCOM file.

Summary

I'm surprised that this program isn't more popular. It certainly does what it says on the tin - and who *doesn't* like messing around with Google Earth :-)

"Got my tree of over 2000 names in Google Earth in mins"

July 21, 2008  |  By FamilyHistoryNut

 |  Version: Map My Ancestors 1.3

Pros

Extracts all the places from your tree and geocodes them but allows you to edit or override result. Also saves places you have located before so you don't need to check them again next time. Helpful video on web site.

Cons

If you have vague or badly formatted place names in your tree it can have a few problems finding them.

Summary

If you are into researching your family tree and you like playing with Google Earth then this is a really cool tool - especially considering the price!

Updated on Dec 4, 2008

The latest updates include a help assistant (along the lines of the MS Office assistant) which guides you through the steps of mapping a family tree.
