    Judy, thank you for a superb webinar. I put your syllabus into my Law School for Genealogists’ binder. This topic should be added to your course as it provides an outstanding research tool for find applicable law.

    This was one of the most valuable webinars I have viewed. As an attorney, Judy has the unique ability of being able to teach others how to find and understand applicable laws so we can accurately analyze our research. She does a fantastic job of teaching others and graciously answers any questions.

    As usual, Judy was amazing. I’ve been doing it all wrong–no wonder I couldn’t find what I wanted. This is a must for anyone looking for a specific law in a given time and place.
