    Thank you

    Thank you for introducing me to family stories through YouTube

    Thank you so much- great webinar! I have been considering adding video to my blog and this is a great way to do it. Appreciate how you went through the steps and even included info for Macs- we often get left out. Very organized presentation and fantastic handout to help us not forget a step. Will be watching for your webinars in the future!

    The ideas are now spinning in my head and what I can share on YouTube!

    The instructions were easy to follow. I wish she had created more genealogy related videos to give us some inspiration and examples on what can be done.

    The was too much focus on basic Powerpoint mechanics. I would have preferred more time spent in PowerPoint features useful tip when using it with to YouTube . I expected more on YouTube.

    The webinar was very good. Would enjoy listening to this speaker again. Will have to listen to it when I can finally download a sylllabus.

    This was useful. I use Powerpoint a lot so the beginning was not new to me, but using Powerpoint to make videos for YouTube was a great idea. Thanks.

    This was very useful and easy to understand step by step

    Very clear step by step process. Learned a lot.

    Very good information. Would have liked a few more minutes on the YouTube part but, overall, very nice.

    very good overview

    Very good. I learned a lot.

    Very informative

    Very informative and well organized.

    Very informative!

    Very informative. A lot of information to digest in a short amount of time, but I enjoyed learning about making videos. I feel it can be very helpful to my future goals.

    Very informative. Answered a lot of questions I’d wondered about.

    Very informative. Answered many of my questions.

    Very interesting subject! I never thought about sharing family history to Youtube for my daughters and extended family. This would be a great way for them to learn about our ancestry. They already watch videos on most social media platforms. Now that I know you can have more than one channel and keep it unlisted is great. I’m going to start working on a couple channels right away! Thank you for this information!

    Very interesting.

    Very well done!

    It went at a slow and even pace I understood everything! Would recommend this webinar to all!

    Very well done.

    very well explained and much more detailed than I was expecting, which was great!

    Vey nice presentation.

    Wasn’t expecting to learn how to use PowerPoint, but the rest was good. Did refresh my memory on a few things related to PowerPoint though

    Well organized. Simple to follow directions. Thanks.

    went a little fast but good info – glad I’ll be able to rewatch!

    Wonderful Now I want to start a U Tube Channel!


    Wow! Such a lot to learn! She’s quite a presenter! So many thanks to her and you!!
