  • With Google Earth, you can see aerial views starting with 1993.  At the top of the map, look for a round clock with an arrow around it.  Click on that and you’ll get a slider with the years available to be seen.  Some of the images are not focused real sharp, but you’ll still be able to enjoy them.  To download GoogleEarth, click here.
  • With Google Maps, you can create your own maps which you can save.  Suggestions: mark on a map where your grandparents’ home was located, where they’re buried, where they went to school.  This also gives you latitude and longitude which will be a marker for that spot in spite of changes in structures.  You must have a free Google account.  Google Maps is available without downloading a program.  For information, click here.
