    I’ve been taking webinars for years and have been looking for a presentation like this without success. It’s so basic and direct and SO important to research. Thank you so much! Would you consider doing something similar to this for German B, M, D records that are presented in a table format?

    I loved that she didn’t just read to us, but expected us to work along side of her. It made me understand what I would be looking for even though I still can not read the old German script.

    Absolutely Excellent. Loved it all and I am not even researching German lines. I especially liked the little review test at the end. I do believe I learned a few things. Thank you.

    Will there be a recording of this webinar for us to listen to again during the next week? I would like to take more complete notes – so useful to help glean information from the vital records of birth, marriage, and death!

    Thanks Katherine, I love your webinars. I have listened to many of your webinars about vital records and taken your German Script class but every time I hear a new webinar I learn something new that is really helpful. Thanks and keep them coming.
