    This was the best presentation I have seen for finding an unknown African-American ancestor! Nicka’s energy and enthusiasm were palpable and kept my attention the entire time. The details and examples were easy to understand and I am able to see how I can use the same strategies in my own family research. I wish the webinar had been longer because I want to keep listening to her.

    What an amazing presentation! Listeners can easily tell Nicka is passionate about what she does. She gave us so much information in such a short time, but it didn’t seem like so much until we think back over her presentation. Although I am not a black woman, you can bet I will be listening to Nicka’s other presentations. She is great! Thank you for asking her to participate.

    Oh, my goodness, what a fun presenter! You just get caught up in her discussion! And her researching tips and techniques definitely apply to everyone’s research, not just African American. This was my first experience with Nicka, but I’ll be checking out her other webinars.

    This was an exciting webinar even if you are not African American. I have Louisiana relatives so she gave me some other trails to search .
