Are you doing research on ancestors who lived in Minnesota? The Minnesota Historical Society is a great resource, and offers many tips as well as databases

So I'm running a bit behind, but here's Wednesday's blog post. Don't think there will be one today, but possibly tomorrow...
Anywho... this is the marriage certificate of my great-grandparents. :-)

New post for Mappy Monday - Using custom Google Maps to track your family!
Using My Places in Google Maps to create custom maps showing where events in my ancestors lives occurred. Great for collaboration and getting a big picture view.

Historical maps would be fantastic! I'd also like to be able to have it show the path that people followed, without drawing my own lines. Right now my map is a bunch of "pins" showing where people lived, but it would be great to have a different colored line for each person showing their migration path. Is there anything out there now that does that?
