    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.

    I always learn from Rebecca! I was first a student of hers in a class at IGHR several years ago. I’m still a student of hers through these webinars.
