    A great deal of information. So many things to learn. Many useful tools. Very informative.

    A lot of it just reminding me of things I know – but good to have the syllabus with links.

    Actually, one of the best. And given the high quality of most of these webinars, that’s saying something!

    Again I have learned new things that should help make my genealogy search more productive. Thanks!

    Alway excellent presentations! Thanks!

    Always good to have the “latest” since they change so often. Great Syllabus



    Brilliant webinar with lots of great ideas to help move our genealogy researching forward.

    Came late to the webinar, but still picked up some good tips. Will need to replay the beginning!

    Excellent information — immediately useable tips and how-to’s to become more efficient. Thanks!

    Excellent presentation and handout with links to the various apps and sites. Thanks!

    Excellent presenter and wonderful reminders of all the Tips and Tricks available.

    Excellent tips — now to try some of them!

    Extremely informative! So glad I attended the webinar! Will probably watch it again.


    Fantastic. Picked up many tips that I can use.

    First Genealogy Webinar………Wonderful Tips and Great Presenter! Thanks!

    FIVE +++++++++!! Super handout and so helpful. Can’t wait to explore each tip, one at a time. Thanks so much.

    Gena is always great!

    Gena is an amazing speaker. I’m so impressed with the amount of knowledge she has on many different topics.

    Gena is the best… Thank you.!

    Gena Ortega did a great job of presenting lots and lots of technical tips in a way that was easy to understand. It was overwhelming to hear so much new tech stuff out there, but she did make me feel better by saying “pick out what works best for you and what you are trying to accomplish.” Sometimes I feel like I can never keep up with all of it. I attend Webinars like this so I am at least aware of what is available–even if I never use it. I love Legacy Webinars. Geoff and Marian do a great job with them

    Gena, Thank you for your excellent webinar content and presentation!!!

    Gina is fun to listen to as well as having great tips!

    Got some good tips today which I can begin using right away. Thanks!

    got some new things to explore from the webinar-that’s what it all about!!

    Great and accessible information, perfect execution and great notes. Thank you.

    great as usual

    Great handout with links. Can’t wait to test them out

    Great information – and presented well!

    Great tips! A little overwhelming, but as she said, “take just a few and work with them”….

    Great tips! Lots of things to try. Thank you to Gena, Geoff & Legacy.

    Great tips! Can’t wait to try them out.

    Great tips!

    Great tips, especially the image search to match unknown building or people, etc. Thanks!

    Great tips, ideas to try out and suggestions!

    Great tips. most I’ve used but glad to get new ideas and uses

    Great topic, good variety of tip topics, Geoff juggled everything including tech interrupts amazingly, encouraging enough to try vs overwhelmed to feel too last century Thanks.

    Great webinar and handout! Thank you!

    great webinar as usual….

    Great webinar. Great technology tips too!

    I hope I can get our Community archivist to look t this. I think she could really use some of these tips. Thanks for a very informative presentation,

    I learned so many new things to keep me organized and efficient! And the hand out is perfect. I’ve got a lot of new things to try. Yay!

    I’ll watch this one again and again. Amazing how long I’ve been researching and how many tools I haven’t used. My genealogy society needs to have Gena at our next all-day seminar.

    Information overload! 🙂 Must watch again.

    Lots of great info.

    Lots of great information. Just dragged an image into Google Images, and that worked fine, unfortunately they did not find a match. But will add that to my “To Do Periodically” list as it is a family photo from 1897 and it would be great to find the names, or even someone else who has a copy..

    Lots of great tips info to try out.

    Love the RocketBook!

    Love today’s webinar and come to think about it I love them all!!! Gena had great information and as always I learned a lot! Thank you.

    More ideas than I’d ever considered. Absolutely wonderful webinar.

    More learning to do – more time required – but extremely interesting.

    My mind is boggled by all the information in this webinar. I didn’t even get everything because I would be off on another adventure looking at am app or site and miss the next tidbit. Will definitely be watching this one again.

    Outstanding. I consider myself fairly tech savvy but learned a bunch today.

    Very Interesting!

    very interesting, easy to follow and understand, pace was excellent for taking notes

    Very interesting. Picked up some good tips that I didn’t know about.

    very interestung

    Very useful for using common technology that many already use and find new ways to help with genealogy. I was already aware/use of about half the tips (since I’m a long time Google/Gmail user and have Apple mobile devices), but it was a good refresher. I also have new ideas and products to try out and see what works best for me. Presenter was very pleasant and explained things well.

    Was not aware of some of the shortcuts – will have to check them out,

    well organized!

    Wish I could have stayed and watched the whole thing!

    wonderful webinar on tech tips.

    Wonderful webinar, a little overwhelming as I am not tech savvy. But lots of tips & tricks to think & learn about. Thank you so much.

    Worth the price of admission. Especially good for non-techies.



    Wow!! What a lot of great — and new to me — tips to check out. Thanks, Gena
