    Lots of good information.

    A good basic overview of how to find passenger records. Thank you.

    A lot of information covered in a short time

    Absolutely fabulous presentation and very informative. Thank you.

    All new research tools I had not used before. Thank you

    As all of your webinars, very informative. Just going to have to get at IT.

    Brilliant webinar with lots of great examples to aid finding relatives who emigrated.

    Can’t wait to go in and check for my ancestors.

    Definitely one of the best My Heritage webinars I have attended. Great work to TEAM Legacy Family Webinars to overcoming the initial tech issues and seamless handoff to the Marian for the Q&A. As always, I believe this is the best money I spend in Genealogy each year. Thank you.

    excellent as always 🙂

    Excellent helpful information!

    excellent information and presenter spoke with a speech-pace that was enjoyable (sometimes people read their notes VERY QUICKLY and we miss alot of what is being said).

    excellent presentation, very clear and detailed with excellent handout, easy to find (which is not always the case)

    Excellent presentation.

    Excellent speaker and very easy to follow her instructions! THANK YOU!

    Excellent suggestions especially for MyHeritage, but even ideas to use otherwise. The handout covers other sections of the immigration process.

    Excellent!! Can’t wait to search for a few of my more elusive ancestors. The photos of different ports was so enjoyable to see and I loved the slide showing what an actual sailing route would be. I never realized how the route went South before heading North!!! Thanks so much.

    Full of wonderful information. The pictures were awesome and added to the story, and I will watch again, so I can look closer at them, as they are not in the handout. Overall, it’s a very good presentation . Thanks

    I appreciated the cadence of Sharon’s voice. She was easy to listen to and it was easy to follow the program because it was not rushed. Thank you.

    I enjoyed the information and presentation very much. Thank you

    I enjoyed the presentation. There was a lot of information given.

    I enjoyed the way the material was presented in the PowerPoint slide show. I will look forward to researching more on my relatives migration from Europe location to the U.S. Thanks for putting on this presentation.

    I got a lot of new search ideas to work on now.

    Good information, glad I have the printout for reference.

    I just got my Heritage so it was informative but yet confusing as I have no tree on heritage. I started my genealogy and created a tree on Word 20+ years ago

    I liked her use of the photos to get insight as to what the ships were like. I also liked the tips she gave in regards to the specific passenger list.

    I liked how easy it is to research passenger lists and hints where to find ancestors.

    I really appreciate the syllabus. I helps with my note taking. Thank you!

    I wish more time had been spent on what the moderator asked and showed at the end relative to how to go about doing the search. It was helpful to hear the explanation along with SEEING where the mouse cursor is placed/clicked. I need to rewatch that part of the webinar especially – watch it, pause, make notes, etc.

    I wish she had mentioned departures from Scotland to Canada in the early 1800’s. I liked her tips for each website she mentioned.

    Informative. Thanks!

    Interesting for the searches.

    It was very helpful, informative, and a well presented presentation. Thank you. I will be checking out other presentations by Sharon Monson.

    It was very informative & showed sources I was not aware of.

    It was wonderful! I’m so excited that I was looking for my email offering a discounted price to subscribe to My Heritage. I just ordered a DNA kit and was interested in a membership that I could pay annually not monthly. Thank you!

    The presentation was wonderful! Lots of details and instructions on how to search. Thank you!

    To be very honest, I think it was a voice issue for me. Found it difficult to listen to. Just me. She had good information.
