    The information was so well organized and clearly defined. I liked seeing the summaries in print of what her research revealed. I want to do that also for some of my complex research so that I can keep it all straight in my mind and in a way to share that other relatives can understand the research. It was good she researched the DAR information; a good reminder not to take published information for granted even when it is a credible source.

    I missed the first 20min, underneath the house starting the furnace, but was very interesting even truncated! Wil def rewatch from the beginning.

    I came in late, but it was very interesting. It is amazing to me how much time it can take to find the answer(s) and how many advancements can be made in technology and the way we do things differently. Thank you for this look at your search and techniques over time.

    Yes, sometimes we get things wrong or they come to us wrong, and then we have to research to correct them. This was an excellent presentation and helpful to me even though I have my ancestors in other parts of the world.
