    My main take away is get to know your area before starting your research on voting, taxes and state issues. Thank you so much Mark.

    I found this webinar very interesting regarding formation of states/counties and changing borders. My gr-gr-gr-grandfather was born in North Carolina, married someone from South Carolina, first child was born in Tennessee, and ended up in Kentucky. Makes me wonder how many moves were really made!
