    I found the webinar very, very helpful in my quest to find my maternal grandmother’s siblings that I have pictures of but no info. Both grandparents and their families are deceased now. I love Kristy’s webinars and would like to congratulate her on another webinar very well done!!

    I have ancestors from both Great Briton and Wales so this was a very interesting webinar for me. I’m glad to see that there is much more military information available than I thought. Thank you for discussing this topic in such a clear way.

    I have not found any ancestors from England but this is good to know. Thanks
