I really enjoyed this seminar. Maureen gave a very well prepared presentation and was able to give us amateur genealogist some great websites to search. She also allowed the audience to ask questions and this gave many folks the chance to share information and get new ideas. The consultation after the presentation was a great way to finallly get info on that ole' picture that you have had for years! Many mysteries were solved.
