Google Earth Street View Story - Cool Video

Ya gotta love Google Earth's Street View!  It can bring you up close and personal to locations important to your family history. For instance in our family there's the house in
England where Grandpa Cooke was born...

And the Opera House where he and his mother played in the orchestra in the early 20th century...

It's almost like being there!  But what if you really could be there?  There's a great little video that brings street view to life. It's called 2nd Avenue, and it's one of the finalist WNET's Favorite short videos contest. Check it out and cast your vote for Street View!

Images like these are just the tip of the iceberg as to what Google Earth can do for your family history.  Watch this short video to see more, and my Google Earth for Genealogy DVDs will show you step by step how to do it all.
