    Love Jim Beidler! So willingly shares the clues, shortcuts, whys & insights he has learned without making me feel intimidated as a “newbie” or somewhat- experienced, but on-the-path family historian. Love his complicated enough to make me learn something, but simple enough that I can grasp it at first-hearing style.

    Having been frustrated in part trying newspapers, I will give it another go armed with a better understanding. Also build out those stories found.
