    I’m very grateful that this will remain free to access, as there was such a huge amount of information sources provided beyond MyHeritage, that I couldn’t make note of them all! Thank you so much!

    Immigration topic is so vital, the Presenter had so much knowledge.

    Interesting and I got a couple of ideas but I was already familiar with most of the information. It will encourage me to use My Heritage more often.

    Interesting, good ideas.
