    Having this collection on My Heritage represents a stupendous achievement, both for the migration of all of these images and for the amazing index of so many handwritten records. Thanks for taking us through these records and demonstrating different methods of examining and using them. I’ve been wallowing in them since they arrived on My Heritage and have already broken through two brick walls. Merçi infiniment! Linda Y Gouazé

    For so many years I had hit a brick wall with my French Grandmother’s family and it is only recently that I have been able to break through to this side of the family and so Elisabeth’s advice was most helpful as my french is limited but her advice helped to breakdown the standard form of the french documents which will make my continued research so much easier. Thank you so much.

    Came in late but found the content I heard very helpful as I have French ancestors. Will go back and watch the replay. Looking forward to the release of more records.
