Highlands Ranch Genealogical Society May 2019 Program - Using Maps for Genealogical Research

Posted by dbarton

Join the Highlands Ranch Genealogical Society 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 7 at the Lone Tree Public Library, 10055 Library Way, Lone Tree, CO 80124 for “Using Maps for Genealogical Research,” presented by author and genealogist Roger L. Dudley.

In his presentation, Roger will emphasize the importance of using maps to research a family or a community. Maps are a snapshot in time that can prove or disprove the presence of a person or a place. Different maps will show different things and searching for the right map can make all the difference. Sanborn Fire Insurance maps and dozens of other types of maps will be discussed, along with how to locate and use them.

Roger Dudley was born and raised in Denver, attended Mesa College in Grand Junction when it was a junior college; Colorado State College in Greeley, graduating after it became the University of Northern Colorado; and earned a master’s in library science from Emporia State University. After a 35-year career in video production, he retired from Public Service Company of Colorado. In 2006 he became a reference librarian and archivist at the Denver Public Library assisting people with questions about genealogy, house history, general history, and anything else that can be imagined. He has written two books - one for his family (Kravig) and one for every genealogist on the planet called In Their Time, which is a chronological journal available as print on demand. He retired in 2019 from the Denver Public Library.

Come early at 6:30 p.m. to network with other members and guests. You never know who might have the answer to your most perplexing genealogy question.
