    Another great webinar

    AWESOME WEBINAR!!! Very, very thorough census information. Some information I am aware of … some information I might learn in upcoming years … and some information I would never have learned without this webinar. Organization of information is very user friendly. Method of presentation: very calm and informative.


    Brilliant webinar with lots to checkout.

    Excellent information

    Excellent presentation!

    Excellent webinar. Mike’s knowledge is impressive. I’ll be recommending this.

    Good information about censuses in other countries that I was not aware of.

    Great presentation about censuses. I will feel far more confident examining them from now on. And now I also understand why there are differences between the various years. This was my first webinar. It won’t be my last.


    Great! So much information. Thank you, Mike!!

    He did an excellent job presenting the benefits and challenges of using censuses, including a few new reasons for why people lied about specific information like ages. It was quite disheartening to realize no every county recognizes the historic value of censuses. I understand their reasoning, but it’s still disheartening as a genealogist to think of all that valuable data being destoyed.

    Highly knowledgable. Thank you for the information!

    I didn’t realize Kansas had a state census–just found a new record for my great-grandfather, who only spent a few years there before moving further west. Thanks!

    I thought it was very informative and helpful. I enjoyed it and would recommend to others.

    In person and virtual, Mike Mansfield is a fabulous speaker and I always learn something new.

    Lots of great helpful information!
