Great job Anne!

Kudos to whoever thought this up. Doing this once or twice a week will really help people get the most out of NewSearch.

Looking forward to the next one.

This was an informative video. I did notice near the end you filled in the tree with Emmer’s married name where her maiden name should have been entered. The maiden name is unknown at this time, but I always leave a female’s name blank if I don’t know her maiden name. I believe this is standard practice.

Looking forward to future videos like this one.

Is this presentation still available online? If so, where? The Ancestry Livestream page says it is offline.
