Using Google Maps To Document Your Past Life

By Greg Merrill · Dec 15, 2018 ·

    After one thing led to another, I came up with the idea of using Google Maps to make a record of some of the important places in my life’s history. I have just begun this project, and have much more to do on it, but thought I would share this idea with some people before I go on. Since I didn’t want to post this project on the Internet, I decided to use Google Maps, cut and past the URL’s to a Word file, showing places I wanted to see pictures of, give and explanation of them above, and then be able to privately be able to go through it without it being posted on line all the time for others to see. Thinking this was a good idea and interesting project, I thought others might like to do the same thing regarding their own important places in their lives. Old houses, schools, places of employment, favorite places of entertainment, shopping, vacation spots, other relatives homes, and wherever one has spent some time are all places one could consider using.

    One could even create a bucket list of places they would like to go.

    See below to get an idea of how to do this. Enjoy.

    I got these pictures of the places as they looked in 2018, so of course they are slightly different than how they were when they were associated with me.

    Place the curser anywhere over the link, hold down “control”, and left click and wait for it to open.
