    Great webinar and loved the wheel/relative pursuits! Every time I watch someone like Mary applying the standards, correlating the evidence etc it sinks in a bit further. Thank you.

    Wow! That was incredibly fun to watch! I can not wait to watch it again. It is also wonderful to know I’m on the right track to solving my own mysteries by using the same technique(s)! Thank you so much.

    Simply fantastic, as are all of today’s webinars. The ‘little gray cells’ in my ‘genealogist-in-training’ brain are just dancing with all the new ideas. I love running across others researching “neighbors” and other allied-families of my extended [Pennsylvania region] kinfolk. So many new ideas and clues, let alone the brilliant methodology instruction. And thanks ever for the citations included in the slides…gads of new places to look I never conceived.

    This webinar is an excellent ‘How to do Genealogy’ primer. Great step by step examples of how to really look at a record and pull out all the details while also gaining clues on your next research path.
