I Just Joined History Pin

There is a fairly new site called HistoryPin that allows you to pin your photos to a map and create collections.

I put a pin icon on the top right of the page and then used their code to put a widget on the bottom of this page that shows a few things. So far I only have a couple of photos. But you can click on them and read the story which is the description I added. 

The map is a little slow to come up on the blog widget, it is faster on the site.

Here is what it looks like down way down on the bottom of this blog after I clicked on the photo and the map.


Since most of my Kansas relatives all lived in Parsons for many years, I thought this would be a great location to use this. 

I plan to put a photo where each of the family homes were per the census data I have. I think it will be really fun to see how close everyone really lived in Kansas.

I was hoping to join with other family members but it looks like you can only see your own stuff on your own map. But each member can publish a collection, so that will be interesting to see grow.

Scroll down now to the bottom and check it out. You might be happy you did.

If you are using it, please leave me a comment. Maybe we can inspire each other.
