    This was great. She explained the GPS clearly and the use of indirect evidence Ina way that was understandable. A great case study!!

    This was full of incredible information! I’m a Registrar for my DAR chapter, and I shared it with members of my chapter. It’s not only an excellent explanation of indirect evidence, but it’s also full of mini-lessons on timelines, charts, and maps, as well as purposeful writing. Thank you so much.

    I liked having a real life example to go along with her talk on indirect evidence. It made it more interesting & reinforced the points she made. And, I loved the mention of confusing mistress and witness! That’s classic

    Really interesting. It was lovely to follow each detail in Rebecca’s research that helped her to arrive at her conclusion.

    All of her information was very useful to me. I especially liked her chart on Indirect Evidence. A lot of what I work with for people in DNA matches seems to have that kind of information. Thank you for a great presentation.

    Excellent information and logic to take the “fear” of making mistakes out of the research equation. How to document,compile, and cite sources was very interesting.
