About this webinar

Have you ever relied on one of those published genealogies from the 1800s?

    Thank you for a very thoughtful and useful webinar. I came late to using computers. I wish I had learned how to do presentations. You do it so well.

    A good job of supporting the benefits of using transcriptions and providing “how to” examples. I am sure I will find the knowledge useful.
