About this webinar

Clicking links means you can start off on a web site for one specific topic and end up dozens of web sites away on many different topics. It’s easy to get lost and lose focus on what you were trying to find in the first place. And with so many web sites to use in your research, how do you keep track of them all? How do you organize what you use regularly? How can you get back to a site at some point in the future? We have several ways to help you gain control of your digital bread crumbs.

    5+++++ Learned so much looking forward to trying to put things to use.

    5++++++++ for Cyndi, her presentation style and the content.

    A Lot of new good info. Needed more time so she could slow down slightly. Very good webinar.

    Absolutely Wonderful!

    Again Cyndi has given a “A” plus webinar.

    Almost too much! Luckily, I have a webinar subscription so can watch again, and again, and again, if needed!

    Amazing and super-informative!! Loved the whole thing!

    Amazing presentation. So glad I attended!!!

    Another excellent webinar by Cyndi, that I can go back to again and again.

    As per usual — great – thanks


    Best webinar yet. Something everyone can use.

    came in late; very glad I have a webinar subscription; however, this might have been too much information given at a too fast pace. will have to assess this when I view the recorded version. I am thankful I can stop that recorded version and repeat if necessary. thank you very much.

    Cyndi always gives you ideas and tips that you never thought of. I really enjoyed learning how to make a better bookmark. Now I will be up all night pulling apps, cleaning bookmarks, and creating more detailed. Thanks, Cyndi I always learn new things from you. I just wanted to say that again. I also wanted to thank you for giving us a great place to bookmark that makes our genealogy easier!

    Cyndi is a fantastic resource for all of us, and this webinar had so much new information.

    Cyndi is always great!

    Cyndi is always great, learn a lot! So glad I can watch again later, missed the beginning. Thanks 🙂

    Cyndi is always great.

    Cyndi is great! Lots of great tips!

    Cyndi is such a great speaker. I wasn’t horribly interested in today’s topic, but listened all the way through because she is so funny.

    Cyndi is the Energizer Bunny Plus! She must eat, sleep, dream genealogy!

    Cyndi spoke quickly but showed what she was talking about and included numerous options (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) to make it useful for everyone. Excellent.

    Cyndi taught me lots of things about browsers and bookmarks that I didn’t know. Bring her back for more!

    Cyndi was most excellent, as always!

    Cyndi’s webinars are always full of great information but will need to re-watch to understand fully. So much is in the webinar it is hard to take in on the first watch. Really enjoyed it.

    Cyndi’s webinars are always great!

    Cyndi–the Master of all things Internet–Bravo!!

    Didn’t think it would be of that much value, but was so glad I watched. I learned many things to try and I appreciate her sharing so much knowledge. Thank you




    Excellent content and presentation – thank you Cyndi…

    Excellent presenter and topic. Mega kudos to all.

    excellent webinar

    Excellent webinar, I learned at lot.

    Excellent! I learned a lot.

    Excellent!! As usual, I always learn from Cyndi. New tools I can definitely put to use. Thanks Cyndi and Geoff.

    Excellent!!! A quick way to learn about a lot of practical sites and apps that I would not have the time to search out by myself. Aand as a ritired educaator I KNOW how much work it is to pull something like this together. I can’t wait to get to the new site on Facebook and see what more I can learn there.

    Excellent, detailed information!

    Excellent. So much information requires multiple watchings. Very impressive on top of everything Cyndi does.

    fantastic hints and tips

    Good material and a reminder to keep track of research


    Great as always

    Great handout — should be able to recreate some of the hints that Cyndi gave. Thanks!

    Great information and well presented

    Great information! Well taught! Thanks!

    Great job

    Great organizational session!

    Great program but she talks too fast. Excellent information.

    Great tools for organization – that is definitely my Achille’s heel. Loved the idea of Onetab – my husband is always giving me a hard time because I am using all the bandwidth with my many, many open windows. I will be installing it now 🙂

    Great topic and even greater resources! And all just a click away during the presentation!! Thank you Cyndi!!

    Great webinar on using bookmarks, toolbars, notes and other applications to do genealogy.

    Great webinar!! But Cyndi’s always are!! I can’t wait to use OneTab!

    Great webinar.


    Great. Too fast, but great.

    Had to leave webinar a little early but certainly learned a lot of new tips and tricks about bookmarks (which I already use a lot). Thank Y ou

    I always feel so hopeful after listening to Cyndi. Off to organized!

    I always learn new things from Cyndi that make life easier, as long as I remember to use them! This was a very useful webinar and Cyndi’s a wonderful presenter, knowledgeable, practical, relatable, and easy to understand. Excellent webinar.

    I always learn so much from Cyndi’s Webinars. It amazes me how knowledgeable Cyndi is and how much she does and gets accomplished. Awesome!!

    I always love learning something new! Especially when I already thought I knew a lot about it.

    I did tech support for Earthlink (many, many years ago). I learned several new extensions that I will be looking into! Thank you very much.

    I have been trying to figure put how to organize my bookmarks for to be a better researcher. Thomas MacEntee says to have a genealogy “toolbox” for bookmarks. Really didn’t have an idea how to proceed. Now I can proceed with gusto. Thanks so much

    I knew most of what was talked about, but she was a good speaker

    I need to listen to this webinar again! Or maybe several times. Thanks so much to Cyndi for putting together this new class, to Geoff for all your hard work & great ideas for new webinars, & to Legacy for sponsoring these & keeping the subscription price so reasonable.

    I need to rewatch this.

    I really liked the examples of your citations and all the other tidbits of information from your syllabus.

    I work on computers all day and I learned so much.

    I’ll be listening to this again to see what I missed the first time!

    I’m glad I can rewatch. Excellent presentation but too much information too fast.

    Info filled. Great stuff.

    Information overload. I will need to watch this several more times

    Interesting topic. Now I am going to clean my bookmarks


    It doesn’t get any better!

    It was a great class. Thank you.

    It was great

    It was very interesting and informative. I have 4 pages of notes, but am no sure I can read them. Printable handouts would be very helpful, but I do know that she worked a lot on it.

    It went pretty fast but she had lots of good suggestions that included examples. Glad she included examples in different browsers.

    It went too fast for me to follow everything that was said. However, it covered a lot of information, that if I were more computer literate, I am sure was very useful. The ideas of creating folders for bookmarks was something I did not know – also the idea that you can take lots of open tabs and move them into one place to view later and not take too much space on the computer was helpful.

    It’s a good thing the recording is available – love Cyndi, but she goes so FAST!

    It’s a lot to learn, and we may have to listen to it again. A lot of helpful suggestions!!!!!

    Just starting so some of this is above my head right now but good direction Thank you

    Learned a lot

    Learned a lot of tricks.

    Learned a lot, just hope I can remember it. Thank you

    Learned lots!!

    Learned some good stuff. Thx

    Lots of information. Very informative.

    Lots of new and useful information, but will require watching the webinar several times to get it all.

    lots of useful info, as usual

    Love her presentations! Thank you!


    More! More! More!

    Now I can organize my bookmarks better!

    off to organise my bookmarks!!

    One of the best webinars in a long time. Learned sooooo much – now I just need to put even 25% of it into practice and I will be way faster with research.

    out standing

    Quite informative and the explanations were extremely clear. Thanks very much.

    Really like the bookmarking options, sorry I can’t stay for the end.

    She’s always excellent. Would have liked more time so she could have gone more slowly. But I learned a lot. Please continue to have her.

    She’s always so reliably knowledgeable and skilled at teaching. Another success.

    so many new things to try . . . when will I ever find the time!

    so much information, will certainly need to watch it again, thanks

    So much information. It made me think how I am organized. Thank you.

    So much to learn – will need to listen and learn again and again. Well done

    So well presented! Good speaker.



    SUPER DUPER Webinar.


    Thank you for so many suggestions on what I can do with my bookmarks. I just created a folder on my Firefox Bookmarks Toolbar for my genealogy bookmarks.

    Thank you! Great webinar!

    That was a whirlwind webinar. Of course, I will watch it again tonight. The topic was right on and of great importance in helping me to get and stay more organized. I love seeing her list of OneTabs back to November. I can relate!

    The level of the presentation was very good.

    This has to be the best! Amazing! They are all so good, but Cyndi is so knowledgeable. Loved it! Can’t wait to watch again 🙂 Thank you so much!

    This is a real re-watcher…so much info…Thanks

    This is one webinar I will watch over again a few times so that I can better absorb all the great information in it.

    This was such a good webinar. I learned so many things and can’t wait to try a few out. So much information that I will have to go back and watch the webinar again. Maybe more than once. thank you so much

    This webinar was excellent! She’s a great presenter – not too fast and not too slow and easy to listen to. I learned a lot. Thanks!!

    Very fast-paced

    very good

    Very helpful! I often have 200+ tabs open on Chrome and have been looking at extensions to group the sites I use most often. Cyndi gave me some great ideas that seem simpler than some of the apps I’ve considered. She has a great personality, too. I love a presenter with a sense of humor!

    Very helpful.

    Very informative

    Very informative, got new tools to use.

    Very informative. A bit quick to follow sometimes, but good to listen to.

    Want to watch this one again.

    Was late to this webinar but still got something from it. Thanks Cyndi for all the time you give to the genealogy community.

    Well worth the time!!!!

    What an outstanding, fast paced and worthwhile webinar. Thank you.

    Will have to relisten to absorb more of this


    Wonderful job. Cindi brought all the bits and pieces together beautifully.

    wonderful nfo but I don’t ue chrome so the examples were not as helpful to me

    Wonderful!!! Genealogy at warp speed!!!

    Wonderful, informative presentation

    Wow! I am so excited about all I have learned – and what I will learn when I review and review this webinar. Thank you!

    Wow! My head is spinning trying to remember all that was covered. Glad I can watch it again and again.
