  1. Enjoyed watching you yesterday, I agree you are very relaxed in your presentation. Great sites you mentioned, can’t wait to play with them!

  2. Thank you for the link to Summit Memory. I found an article about my husband’s grandfather – and his loss of two of three sons in WWII in 1944. I knew about this, but this article in a Goodyear company newsletter gave a different perspective – and my husband didn’t know that his grandfather worked for Goodyear! I will definitely find time to watch this and other RootsTech presentations!

  3. Loved doing 31 days and now really got a lot from the RootsTech presentation. Kudos on your preso style.. walking around, no podium.. My kind of preso!! Congratulations.
