    After an hour of presenting great tips and usage techniques for MyHeritage, Daniel heroically stepped in after a power outage to continue answering questions from the Chat until the end of the webinar. What a great guy!

    Always enjoy Daniel’s webinar’s. Very informative. Unfortunate that technical difficulties occurred. Nobody’s fault though.
    amazing technology!

    as always so much great information 🙂

    As usual, the presentation was very informative. And Daniel handled the technical difficulties with aplomb.

    Because i haven’t use it very much I thought the webinar was good.

    Being new to Legacy Family Tree and MyHeritage, I honestly was overwhelmed by the information. However, I plan to locate the “”beginner’s”” level of beginning webinars offered so I can start out better prepared for more advanced webinars. Thank you for the information you shared today. I look forward to finding out more and more so I can better access the huge database of information your company has acquired. I enjoyed today even though I was overwhelmed.

    Daniel always gives a great presentation, and this time, he handled the technology glitch so well!

    Daniel always gives great info. He should get 10 stars for the way he continued during the technical difficulties at the end of the webinar.

    Daniel did a brilliant job in being flexible enough to overcome the technical difficulties ‘on the fly’. Well done Daniel!

    Daniel did a good job as usual, a fine resource for we amateurs. I learned a few things today which is……. great.

    Daniel did a great job with his presentation and a heroic job answering questions hoping to get Miriam back online!

    Daniel Horowitz is always a superb presenter.

    Daniel Horowitz is awesome! He is so thorough with his slides, and he knows more about genealogy than I will ever know if I live to be 100. Thank you!

    Daniel is a good presenter at all times, but outdid himself today by carrying on when Marian had a power outage. Bravo, Daniel!

    Daniel is always a pleasure to listen to. He really put together a great set of slides to show each part of the screen as he was talking about it.

    Daniel is always entertaining as well as informative

    Daniel is excellent – clear, well-paced, friendly and he admirably took over when the host’s electricity went out (a storm hit).

    Daniel is so knowledgeable! Thank you for a wonderful webinar! No worries on the technical issues it was still great. I am always eager to learn from him.

    Daniel is the Best!

    Daniel was very clear and the presentation was terrific overview of the most helpful tools at My Heritage. THANK YOU.

    Daniel, thank you for taking your time to explain in detail these facets of the website. Your slides, rather than a full live demo, were very helpful. Thanks again!

    David is always so thorough and I learn so much new information.

    detailed and fantastic. thank you

    Enjoyed the session that had so much info my mind was whirling, and difficult to listen and take notes. Speaker was very clear. Can this session be accessed at a later date for review?


    Excellent refresher

    Excellent tips well presented. Also–Thanks for leaping onto the breach when Marian lost power (I think you said), even to supplying Geoff’s usual closing: “Life is short, do genealogy first,” A charming finale to the impromptu conclusion.

    Excellent update and demo.

    Excellent webinar Daniel! Sorry to have lost Marian part way through.

    Excellent! Informative and well presented

    I enjoyed Daniel’s presentation. However, I would have liked to have a handout.

    I have been using Smart Matches Record matches for quite a while bur didn’t know man of the tips you gave us today. THANK YOU!

    I learned more than I had hoped to. Thanks.

    I thought I knew all about My Heritage, but I learn something new and valuable every time I tune in.

    I thought this webinar would be too basic, but it was packed with information. Thank you!

    I was able to ask a question and receive an answer from the speaker.

    I’m new to My Heritage and I love it. I learned a lot today and can’t wait to check out what I learned. I’m sure I will have to watch it again.

    Interesting but I don’t use My Heritage to that extent

    It was good, I think the best thing to do is trial and error, there are always new things on My Heritage, but I appreciate your desire to be helpful and open about what changes there are and what corners we can cut and what new improvements will save us time and make our search quicker and easier. Thank you for that.

    It was great to learn about how to use some of the features of the Legacy Family Tree sight.

    It was very interesting and informative. I’m sorry that there was a technical problem Still, I learned a lot, as I usually do with Daniel’s presentations.

    Mr. Horowitz is excellent. I always learn a wealth of information from him. Thank you

    My highest compliments for your new technique of “flashing” and putting colored boxes to show where the various links and buttons are as you explain about their uses. This is very helpful and something I complained about with previous webinars, not necessarily those that you’ve conducted. THANK YOU!

    Nothing unfamiliar but a nice review of what I already knew.

    One of the best overviews I’ve seen about MyHeritage’s features.
