    Excellent. Yes, I will see this again. Need to take more notes and make some findings! My ancestors were in a number of Canadian provinces so this was a valuable webinar for me. Thanks.

    Reside in Michigan. Can’t wait to start using Tara’a lessons and hints. Will be vacationing in Ontario in a couple weeks and plan to use this to research my Canadian son-in-law’s family in land records while with his family.

    Some of this webinar was a little over my head as I have never attempted land searches. That said, I value and appreciate this information as another tool for use in my genealogy research. Tara gave a great presentation offering tips from her own research which is always helpful to people like me who are just getting started with their research.
