    I’ve been reseaching for over 30 years and love your organization for files. Would love a copy of Elizabeth Gomoll’s FGR and Pedigree Chart, but how do I email her from here? Thank you.

    This is why I continue to attend genealogy webinars and virtual conferences. No matter how long you’ve been doing research, you never know what helpful tips you might pick up.
