- My first Legacy webinar! Wunnerful, wunnerful, as Lawrence Welk used to say.
- She covered so much is such a short amount of time: well organized and informative. Will follow many of her recommendations..
- She followed her syllabus so well that few notes had to be scribbled!
- She presented lots of sources that I had never heard of before. It is great to know that I might still find information on those pesky brick walls. Thanks.

- WOW! I have been using some of the things Karen described for the last couple of months to try and flesh out some of our collateral family members and it has been great. Now with her added information I know that I will be able to find lots more. Thankyou! Thankyou!
