    always need new hints for Australian research

    awesome as always, love Sunny

    Beautifully organized and clear presentation. Just the right pace.



    Excellent overview & that simple suggestion of rotating memberships is a gem. FamilySearch’s search functions can be a rooom of mirrors & the seeing catalog strategy was terrific. Thanks.

    excellent presentation, not too fast

    Excellent. I have been researching for decades with Ancestry etc. and still benefited from the webinar. Thank you.

    Extremely interesting. Also she spoke very clearly and was easily understood. Thank you great job.

    good to have the overview.

    Great ideas, well deserved.

    Great information – well presented – nicely packaged – thanks so much!

    great information presented clearly

    Great presentation – has me thinking!

    Great to know that the catalogues of the various websites can be explored for free. The bonus was being shown how to drill down and get the most from these the content of each.

    I learned so much from Sunny! Now to go explore the card catalogues while I wait for this to show up in the webinar library so I can watch it again. Thanks again.

    I learn’t a lot.

    Interesting and very helpful for a beginner

    Practical and informative.

    Some excellent tips on how to use the catalogues.

    Sunny always makes her presentations give us the feeling that doing this research easy and that we can do it successfully! She’s so uplifting.

    Sunny Morton was prepared and gave us so much information. I learned a lot from her webinar. She is so organized and knows her “stuff'” Thank you!

    Sunny was clear, full of good info and detail.

    The hint about Catalogue searching was the best – I have done this in Ancestry but not the others.

    Timely, just starting my Australian research.

    Very helpful information well presented, easy to follow. Thank you

    very helpful, thanks.

    very informative

    Very informative for a ‘newbie’ and enjoyed watching in the daytime in Australia.

    Very interesting comparison of the major websites, and good to see how to drill down into the catalogues to find specific collections. Also appreciated the reminder to read about the collection, to identify exactly what information is included rather than making assumptions that I have “searched everything”, when maybe it’s not all included!

    Very interesting webinar today, I just now need to do a lot more research!

    well done

    well researched

    Would love more time on using the catalogs
