    As usual, fantastic speaker and helpful information.

    At first I thought this was too basic, but as with all your webinars I learned a few helpful tips. This time more so in the questions and answers portion. Thank you.

    Canada has similar legislation by provinces and while not necessarily the same, it would helpful to remind us of the purpose and significance of wills or no wills to our research. Well presented by an excellent teacher!

    Cleared up some questions for me. Thanks.

    Enjoyed and refreshed my memory about wills and intestate probates
