Quotes & Testimonials

Although I have been working on my family history since 1972, I learned that I have really only been skimming through the records and I have the "Cliff Notes" version. I plan to start over with myself as described today to verify resources and otherwise make sure I have a correct and truthful genealogy. This Retreat was wonderful! I could have gone on for at least 3 more days! I learned there are so many resources I have been completely unaware of! The city tour was very informative. I loved finding out from you the order we should do our research in. Who knew research could be efficient! Thank you so very much--

This has been an amazing experience. It has turned my research ideas upside down. Looking for families makes so much more sense than looking for individuals. Realizing that I need to find all the evidence available to be positive that I have the right person. Plus I have learned so many new sources and websites. I can't wait to get started again. Thank you soooo much!

Despite being called a "Retreat," this was an intense mentoring experience and among the top educational opportunities that I have had as a genealogist. By noon Monday, I had gotten my money’s worth! It has saved me months—if not years—of independent study. To hear leaders in the field talk about best practices and then apply them the same day at the Family History Library--with real-time guidance from the same experts--is unparalleled. I highly recommend that all of you who are intermediate or advanced genealogists check out their offerings.
