So, it seems in previous years while marking personal sites on Gmaps I did it wrong.  Recent video of yours explains we must be using MY MAPS and also ON A COMPUTER!   Thru the years I have marked places on the maps (using just marker and label, never a photo) via the Iphone and never utilized the MY MAP feature.  So, my question is: are these sites I saved now public for all to see?   I have not attempted to delete yet but I am assuming it will be easy to delete these markers. 

On another note totally off topic:  I was looking forward to seeing you again and going to your seminars in Perry GA next week. Unfortunately, life has thrown us some curveballs and we will be unable to attend the FMCA Rally afterall.  Wishing you and all attendees great weather and wonderful time.

Hi Rosemary,

So sorry we won’t get to see you in Perry. Take care of yourself.

As for your map markers, it sounds to me like you are using the saved places feature. This is still only visible when you are logged in to your account, it’s still part of “Your Places” it’s just that the markers are all on the one basic map. In My Maps you can have multiple maps with different markers. Here’s an article about those markers.

Here is one video on that
