    A very good refresher for one who has not done Alabama research recently. New resources.

    But I’ll be 90 when the birth certificates are available! Don’t get sick and don’t fall down! 😀

    Can’t wait for her webinar on SC as that’s where I’ve lived for 20, and discovered ancestors buried here in SC, 50 miles away from where I live now! Hope she addresses Bogansville!

    Covered a very broad spectrum of the types of records to be searched and what is available. Perfect for a beginning Alabama research class. Now that I know what I didn’t know before (and believe me, I don’t know a bunch more!) I can perform more in-depth research in the different types of records.

    Enjoyed the webinar on starting Alabama research.

    Excellent information on AL research

    Excellent speaker! I’m looking forward to her SC webinar where I have lots of ancestors.

    Found some great new sources to research!

    Great overview of resources; gave me lots of new opportunities to dig into my AL ancestors!

    great seminar!!!!

    Have her do the same type of webinar on North Carolina!!

    I have Alabama ancestors, so this was extremely applicable to me. She gave me new clues. She is a great presenter. Looking forward to hearing her do the South Carolina webinar in a few weeks.

    I learned much more than I thought I would before it started!

    Presenter gave excellent tips for Alabama researchers. She is very knowledgeable and loved that she listed sites to explore. Will go back to those ancestors tonight. So excited

    Thank you for including African American research.

    Thanks for a great webinar, looking forward to the one on South Carolina. Thanks for adding some Southern states to the webinars. How about one on Arkansas.

    This was interesting.

    Very good info on Alabama researching.
