Google Maps listing

Hi,

 

Can you help please?  I am working with a local historical society and we would like to add some of the interesting historical sites in our area to google maps.  

 

Is this possible?

Hi @Margaret O, it would depend on what exactly you want to add to the map. In most cases, for historical sites, you would want to add them through Google Map Maker

 

If you are adding a business related to the historical site, you can do that through GMB

 

Take a look at those and let me know if that helps.

 

Good Luck

No luck with either of those Colan... Google Map Maker keeps telling me not available here??? (North Tipperary, Ireland)... and then GMB - it is not a business and it wants to use the address for verification, but it is only a historic site with no one living there!

Flummoxed!
