    This was a great presentation. I have been very leery of AI. Dana did a wonderful job of explaining and highlighting how AI can be used in genealogy. Her slides and syllabus provided great examples.

    Dana Leeds thank you for a very educational presentation and accompanying syllabus. You have helped to remove the mystery, and at the same time, helped to dissolve much trepidation about the use of artificial intelligence for my genealogical research.

    I have watched 2 by Steve Little, 2 by Tom McE on AI, I have learned a lot about this new Science. However, todays talk by Dana Leeds, was the first to get me past the OH WOW of AI. Danas demonstrated examples of how to use AI in the field of Genealogy was the first in which I finally can now see how I will be able to use AI myself in the future. Dana’s coverage of the main 7 uses was Excellent. I will certainly be watching this again and again, and i will be recommending this talk to others!

    Such a well-organized and content-rich presentation! I was already a bit familiar with some of ChatGPT’s capabilities. But I learned from Dana today about so many more generative Ai skills available to tap in ChatGPT and in Claude. I’m anxious now to try things out! Thanks, Dana! Great webinar.

    I had not tried AI for family tree assistance. This seminar makes me feel more comfortable exploring AI as an assistive tool, and helped me understand its strengths and weaknesses, plus lots of tips. Thank you

    I feel limited because of no knowledge of accessing the AI programs that were referenced. Must catch up!
