The New Mexico Genealogical Society presents

Mary Wyant, Map Librarian
The Map and Geographic Information Center
(M.A.G.I.C.) at the University of New Mexico

From the web site: "Whatever your needs or interest, maps can add a new dimension to your research, assignments, work or recreational activities. The Map and Geographic Information Center has thousands of maps and atlases on topics as diverse as flood zones in Bernalillo County to mineral resources in East Asia." Included is New Mexico historical material, such as Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps, and maps of New Mexico and the Southwest, 1700s to 1940.

Ms. Wyant will display a number of maps from the center and discuss their significance to history.

Come join us at Botts Hall for this unique presentation.

This program is free and open to the public.
