    Apprehensive about My Heritage and a little more comfortable now.

    As a long-term volunteer at a Family History Center but not a member of the church, it was nice to see the options. This presentation was very useful.

    Excellent information that will really help me. More impressed than ever with the collaboration and possibilities.

    excellent new information for me. I will be using more help from My Heritage than I would have without the webinar

    Excellent review!


    Great ! Thank You. We have trees and DNA on MyHeritage, as well as accounts on many sites. MyHeritage ia really great as is Family Search. Learn so much every time.

    Great content

    Great information

    Great information! I am going to get my synced tree on MH now.

    Great information, so much I was unaware of!

    Great information.

    Great presentation

    Great resource that I didn’t know about – thank you!

    Great webinar, giving information which will help me synchronise my trees better.

    Great! I learned a lot of new information.


    I always enjoy learning from James Tanner. He is so knowledgeable and dedicated.

    I am a my heritage user and family search user, member of church- so familiar with. However it would be nice to have access to written copy of this webinar. Health issues make ithard forme to follow so much in short time. Otherwise very good info. Thanks

    I am interested in My Heritage and the connection and the benefit to having two trees to keep up. The webinar seemed to just scratch the surface and hard to follow the actual use of the consistency checker.

    I learned quite a bit even though I’m not LDS.

    I like the idea of more search capability on My Heritage, but I am not collaborating with others. I have received hints from My Heritage on entries in my tree on Legacy software and they have been helpful.

    I was especially impressed with the synchronization of my FSFT and MyHeritage Family Tree. I will have to do that soon!

    This was a very informative webinar. I learned things that I didn’t know for both sites. Thanks to Geoff and James!!

    Information was helpful

    It was terrific, loved the speaker, very clear and to the point, good power point-simple to understand. Lots of great information.

    James, thank you for your very informative step-by-step presentation!

    Need to do this over . Can’t wait to try it out. Can we watch this later…Where….How ??? Thanks guys, great job.

    Nice overview of the two programs and how they work together. Thanks.

    Really appreciated Mr Tanner’s expertise on the subject and his mild manner in presenting yet expressing the positive reasons for using the benefits of My Heritage. Thanks

    Thanks for having it
