    Mark Lowe did a good job of explaining indexing and how important they are. Learned that Indexes could have errors and we need to be persistent in looking further in other data bases.
    Very personable.

    Excellent and enlightening presentation Mark, I am always telling new researchers “think about how they would have said it, how do you spell a scottish brogue when they are possible illiterate and not able to recognise if the official recording their name has spelt it correctly.” Will be referring them to your webinar in future 🙂
    I’m off to check out your other presentations!
