    Excellent info on opening the achieves of the library. As a SAR member there was a number of things that I was unaware of NOW available for research.

    Very informative and a library that I did not know existed. Wish I had known when I was in the Louisville area several years ago.

    I am an SAR chapter Registrar. I found the presentation to be very accurate and informative. I learned about some additional told on the SAR website to help me prepare membership applications. I recommend this webinar for anyone doing research to find out about Revolutionary War ancestors and descendants.

    Fantastic!! I occasionally download SAR applications from Ancestry, but I had no idea that the SAR headquarters were in Louisville & much was available online. I’d love to visit in person as I have many ancestors who had lived there & at least one home is still standing. Also many direct ancestors & their collaterals are buried there.

    This was my first webinar and I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for the information and the tour. I look forward to accessing the site to see what I can learn about my revolutionary soldier and to see if I have more in my genealogy. I would love to make a trip to see the library and the option to pay for someone hourly to research is incredible option for those who do not travel often.
