    I greatly enjoyed learning about maritime records.

    I love new info!

    I really appreciated her conversational presentation, rather than those who read a script. A wealth of great information.

    Interesting information. Thanks.

    It would be interesting to do a followup lecture on this topic either dividing by time, ie before and after 1820 or between MA and Maine. Very interesting topic!

    This was the best webinar I have seen. Gave me some ideas of places I haven’t tried for information on a ship’s captain from around 1800-1820.
