    Very informative

    A super great lecturer today. She was very knowledgeable about her presentation and she was able to share with us a boat load of information. I must listen to her again and soon.

    Absolutely love her passion. Also, love the topic; it is wonderful to see more lectures that focus on researching other ethnicities. Well done to Angela, and well done to Legacy tree webinars.

    Angela Walton-Raji is a very well-spoken and knowledgeable genealogist speaker. I could actually feel her enthusiasm about the subject through her voice and knowledge. I enjoyed her webinar and I learned a lot about the subject. She answered some questions that I had about my own genealogy without me submitting them. She was GREAT!! I look forward to her next webinar!!

    Angela was a wealth of information. Highly recommend everyone to watch it.

    Fantastic! Very to the point but detailed at the same time. Although I’ve completed other workshops, etc about Native American ancestry, I had some information I thought was suspect corrected by today’s presentation. But maybe it’s because better information and more records are now readily available, disspelling some of the earlier myths…Thank you, Angela.

    I am looking into family lore about being part of the Piscataway nation and this webinar provided a lot of information and food for thought. Great webinar!
