    Awesome. By using the information and links presented I was finally able to find the proof of the religion of my 2nd Great-Grandparents. Thank you Sunny.

    I am fascinated by the information you had on Presbyterian Churches. You actually had something on Rev. Samuel McSpadden who is my husbands 6th great uncle. Thank you for the wonderful information you shared

    Sunny, thank you! You are so knowledgeable. Your information was easy to understand & follow. I wish records today were as pretty & clear. Thank you for contributing your precious time to help further the knowledge of other genealogists. You rounded out a great 24-hour Webinar Marathon 2022!

    Very good. Gave me some clues on how to research my GGrandfather who was a Methodist Circuit rider and country doctor.

    Wonderful information on the nuances of the different religious sects and their documentation styles. This adds another tool into my genealogy tool box when searching for answers to deceptively simple questions like, where do I come from, who are my people, are you sure? Thanks for a wonderful marathon. I look forward to reviewing the videos next week, to catch what I missed, and glean all that I can… Starting with of course, Writing as You Go is the WAY to Go!
