    A lot of good information to digest; was able to follow it all even though i had to run two errands while listening.

    Awesome! I finally stumbled upon a Mexican-specific genealogical webinar! Can we please have more webinars on Mexican genealogy? Thank you so much!

    Brilliant webinar, a must watch again! to get the most out of the mass of information and tips provided during the webinar.

    Clear presentation. Very informative. Appreciate the document samples, tips, and reference to study the BYU Script Tutorial. Thank you!

    Colleen Greene provided me with so much fantastic information today. I have a client who wants to discover his Texas/Mexican heritage, and this webinar will greatly assist me now. Thank you so very much!!!

    Colleen is very knowledgeable and a clear presenter.

    Enjoyed it

    Excel ant information!


    excellent examples and presentation skills

    Excellent Talk! Would love to hear more on Mexican research!!

    Excellent webinar!

    Excellent, I will be watching for more presentations by Colleen. I really like her, Thanks Geoff and team

    Excellent. I’m a 47 year genealogist and even I got new info. I usually work on French Canadian records, but have had several client inquiries about Mexican records so, Thank You very much. This will also help in researching Southwest Native Americans. Can’t say enough good things.

    First one ever. But I learned some good suff! Thank you.

    Great info and resources.

    Great info. Thanks

    Great webinar! I now have options for finding my Mexican grandmother!! Thank you!!

    i do not have any Mexican members to my knowledge, but still learn different ways of looking at & for records. Thanks

    I had an inkling of how much detail there is, looking over the shoulder of patron researching her Mexican ancestry at my local FHC, but after today have a more overall picture and feel I could dive right in myself. Thanks!

    I would consider this an “action packed” webinar full of amazing information! Thank you Colleen!

    It would have been a “5” if I hadn’t already done a bunch of research in these Mexican records. So I am already pretty familiar with what she presented. Would have been wonderful to have had this webinar a few years ago when I started my research into Alamos, Sonora, and the impact of it’s citizens on the settling of California.

    I’ve been involved with genealogical research for my Mexican ancestors for five years, but I’m always learning something new. Colleen’s presentation taught me much. I look forward to having more detailed sessions with her. Thanks!

    Oustanding webinar on Mexican Church and Civil Registration records.

    Please bring Coleen back for more Webinars, she is wonderful!

    She likes what she talks about

    SO good. Thank you.

    So much detailed info. Colleen is an excellent presenter. I plan to watch the video on this to be sure I didn’t miss anything.

    So much information and so little time for it all!

    Succinct and to the point….covered a lot in time allowed!

    Thanks to Colleen for the great information and resources. It would be great to have additional webinars regarding Mexican records/genealogy.

    That was such an interesting webinar. I had already figured out much of what was covered in Colleen’s presentation and it is really good to know that I’m on the right track.

    This answered so many questions i have had in my 30+ years researching my husband’s family. I started with the names of his grandparents and parents and nothing more. I feel like I started from square one again, but far better prepared.

    Tons of info to digest, Collen was great!!! Love her presentation…

    useful and helpful information. confirmed previous questions. good pace. I would like to hear more from colleen.

    Very clear, well organized, handout very helpful. Colleen is Very knowledgeable. A joy to listen to.

    Very good information and presentation.

    Very good. She knows what she is talking about.

    Very helpful and informative!

    Very informative webinar. Please offer more webinars on Mexican genealogy. Thank You!

    Very informative, wish I had Mexican ancestors

    Webinar very well done. Thank you.

    What an information packed webinar, but it was done with great pacing and examples. Not overwhelming.

    Will review this webinar to see if I can help my Hispanic friends Mexico

    Wonderful! Very informative

    Wonderful. I love your webinars. Don’t know how you can fill them all with this amazingly helpful information. Thank you

    Would be great to have Mexican ancestors – half the work is done by the authorities and their records!

    Would like to know how to find dispensas.
