This is an amazing time to be a genealogist! There are so many wonderful records that are being digitized and being placed online by so many companies, libraries, archives, government offices, groups, and individuals that it’s now becoming difficult to keep up with what all is available.
There are other technologies available these days that facilitate our genealogy research, too. Software programs and new applications are being introduced all the time. Some of these can help us travel through virtual space and time to help us get a sense of place and context. Indeed, you can take a virtual tour of physical locations from the comfort of your armchair. Let’s explore a few of these ways you can take some free virtual tours.
