    Very interesting. Both lecture and syllabus are well laid out. So much information I will have to watch again to be able to absorb it all.

    Definitely needed to hear this information. Searching religious and church records is like looking through a mountain of spaghetti for a tiny meatball. The Koss chart was immensely helpful, as was the explanation of each part and how denominations changed over time. This should be essential viewing for any genealogist.

    Thank you. I suspect this is a topic Carol Whitton could speak about for many hours. What a great overview – it provides new ideas about where to look for more information. Once civil records are available I have tended to overlook further church record research – clearly, I shouldn’t do that and need to go back and look for more gems!

    Very informative. Especially learning about all the different religions and their beginnings in each country. Now I understand how the Lutheran is prominent in Germany and where I can locate my ancestors, at least. Thank you for sharing this wealth of information.

    I didn’t know that there were so many types of religious sects. She explained it very well and her diagrams made it easy to understand.
