    As I am not currently a webinar member I appreciated the scenes with the links. Learned many helpful things in continuing my research. I just keep piling more and more things to learn and don’t get to the actual searching. That is why I haven’t become a webinar member,,, need to do what I have learned.

    As usual, learned a lot, now I have to process and take notes.

    Excellent Webinar – Lots of new Websites I didn’t know about that I can dive into for more Family History Information.

    Excellent webinar!!!

    Excellent webinar…learned about so many websites I’ve not searched yet!

    Excellent! I knew about a fair amount of these sites, but there were some I’d never seen before. As a genealogical librarian, I’m always looking for new resources. I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation. Since Dianne is very much into NC research, could she possibly do something like this for that subject? NC is where a majority of my people were from back in the day. 😉

    Excellent, fresh material but too much to absorb at one time. But will re-watch, probably a couple of times.

    Excellent, good resources most of which are FREE which is always good.

    Excellent, really learned a lot! Thank you.

    Excellent. Speaker extremely knowledgeable. Class should be 2 hours not 50 minutes. Learned alot!!

    excellent-she gave alot of good web sites and talked slow enough for me to write them down too.

    Exceptional webinar today. Lots and lots of info.

    Extremely interesting. I know I will be able to use some of the sites for research.


    Fantastic presentation. Now I have more websites to check out. Thank you

    hard to believe so many sites people aren’t aware of

    I agree with the other commenter — nearly all of the 50 websites were NEW to me. Thanks!

    I always appreciate Diane’s vast knowledge of resources!

    I am 70 years old! So many sites and soooooo little time. I certainly have no reason to be bored — in fact, I may pray for boredom time!

    I am going to be busy!

    I cannot wait to try out these sites!

    I found a couple of websites I didn’t know about. Great presentation.

    I liked how she gave a bit of information on each resource and some idea of what it looked like. She did talk VERY fast just like she said.

    I love it when these webinars share new/old sites for us to use. Many thanks!

    I need to listen to this again

    I personally appreciate the “Firehose” technique! I get more information and can explore at my own pace. Thank you!

    I really appreciate when a speaker REALLY knows her subject and can get it across so well.

    I REALLY enjoyed the webinar and learning more about sites to look for genealogy information.

    I thought it was excellent but too fast-paced. She packed a ton of info into one hour. I took notes on sites I had not heard of.

    I thought it was very informative.

    I’m anxious to try some of the new sources — and re-visit some I had forgotten about.

    I’m SO appreciative of Diane’s hard work to provide us with these golden nuggets of internet resources. Wonderful presentation!
