On Friday I had the honor of presenting to the Hudson, NH Genealogy Club, our search for the Grave of Moses Noble of Berwick, Maine. This talk covered how Sue and I went about our search, using Google Earth and Google Maps, the advantages to speaking with local residents, and some ideas to help record information when you do find something, even if it is not what you were looking for.
Once I finish editing the interview with the Family History Center, I will record this talk in front of the camera to make the next episode.
Some of the links mentioned in the talk (in no particular order) include:

I was also going to upload the power point presentation as a whole but without context I am not sure it will hold up on its own. Best wait for the episode!
