    Appreciated the insight and suggested resources.

    Brilliant webinar with lots of leads to check out.

    Excellent presentation

    Excellent presentation! I don’t have any Louisiana ancestors that I know of, but I always come away from these webinars with new clues for searching elsewhere. This time it was searching for my Swedish ancestor in Chicago, Iowa and California in answer to the person who was searching for her ancestor In early Louisiana. It didn’t occur to me to Google it. Thank you.

    Excellent presentation; logical and to the point.

    Good job with a difficult research area. Thank you

    Rorey was very interesting and tried to cover a broad area of research in a short time. Rorey did an excellent job as I have been researching Louisiana for 50 years and still learned things from tonight

    Very complete and interesting. I would love her to do a Mississippi one as well.

    Very informative. Picked up some great tips to help with researching my Louisiana and Mississippi African American ancestors.

    While I do not have any New Orleans ancestors, I gained new insights into possible ways to find some missing ancestors in other areas. Great presentation!
