    Brilliant webinar packed full of important information for those tracing their family ancestral members from Puerto Rico. It is a must watch again to get the most from this presentation. Also the Handout and Chat log will provide further information to compliment the speakers presentation.

    So much I didn’t know and where to look for records. Puerto Rico records have been so difficult for me to find and then they are in Spanish. I wish I would have taken that language and not French.

    So glad you had this class. I told my friend about it. He is from Puerto Rico and he was going to watch. I am sure he did.

    Expected most on PR records and sources, not US. Helping a friend with her PR ancestry and this webinar (the PR history and records part) was VERY helpful. Big thank you, Barb.
