    How can I receive your daily blogs on my e-mail.

    Totally understand your decision and glad you are making it before you have more accidents. Have seen you in person and on video – you are great either way. Looking forward to more videos/webinars.

    Yay!! You for you, not traveling and continuing to drag the genealogy culture to use technology!! I support your efforts 100%

    Will be looking forward to joining you virtually for genealogy presentations. For me, since I am deaf and unable to travel for your events, your decision to stay at home and present is welcomed. However, to many your non-presence will be a loss. Aging wages a war on the body sometimes but listening to the cues will prolong your life. You will be just as productive as a stay -at -home Master Genealogist because you have the knowledge and skills needed to continue educating all generations. As a mother of sons, daughter, grandsons and granddaughters and great grandsons and greatgranddaughter you have a vast audience and age range awaiting you.

    Hi Thomas,

    Oops! I sent a response to your gmail.

    I wanted to say that I have attended many of your live in-person lectures and have always enjoyed them. Even had a short conversation with you at NERGC a few years ago. You are a very engaging and entertaining speaker. Not an easy feat for speakers to attain.

    You will be missed but it is an understandable decision. Traveling for pleasure can take a toll on us. Anyone who has health issues has those stresses multiplied.

    Having led tours some that are two and three-week genealogy/family history tours of the UK. I love to do it but it is stressful. The planning of the travel the environmental and sleep pattern changes are all hard on the human body.

    You will be missed. I look forward to “attending” your future lectures and classes virtually.

    Take care. Stay well and safe.


  6. Thanks Tafta – right now I am recommending the Epson V600 Perfection Scanner – it is a flatbed scanner with guides to scan slides and negatives too

    Thomas, you briefly mentioned scanners on your webinar on Census Codes on the 24 Hr. Legacy Marathon. Would you be so kind as to recommend an excellent scanner for me to copy photos at home and to use in our community project of helping our community preserve stories and pictures?

    Thank you for your excellent presentations.YOu are always so kind and courteous in your enteractions with everyone. Again, thank you for all you are doing.

  8. Hello Gwen

    Thanks for your kind words and feedback. I have NOT recorded Managing the Genealogy Data Monster for Legacy Family Tree Webinars but I’ll discuss with them and see if we can get a recording uploaded soon.


  9. Hi Thomas
    I so appreciate all the expertise and knowledge you share via Legacy Webinars and your “freebies.” In going through my information files, I have been rereading the handout “Managing the Genealogy Data Monster.” I checked the Legacy library and did not locate a webinar for this. Was this a presentation that I have access to for listening?

    Again, thanks so much for all your contributions to the genealogy field. YOU are one of my favorite and “go-to” presenters for easy to understand and timely information. Your handouts are wonderful!

  10. It appears that after the 2018 server melt down at RootsWeb, the newly rebuilt site does NOT have a similar search function – that’s too bad really. Thanks for letting me know and I’ll adjust my presentation materials.

  11. I just watched your Legacy Webinar about your Research Toolbox and the Rootsweb Research Thingy link returns a 404 error

  12. Hello Evelyn – no problem. It is the Genealogy Research Log and it has its own domain:

    Hi Thomas,
    I have taken several webinars with you and, though I may not always use the information immediately, it always sparks something that eventually is incorporated into my research process. Some time ago, I took a webinar, sponsored by the OGS, about citing sources. You gave us an excel template to use. I started to fill it in with the information I had on one branch of my tree that I has been very elusive. I could see quite quickly that I knew more than I thought. Life intervened and I put my research aside until recently. I cannot locate the spreadsheet I started and can’t remember the original name of it. If I have that I should be able to search again. If necessary I will start over. Hope you can help. Many tanks in advance.

  14. Hello Gerry – is this the webinar “They’re Alive: Searching for Living People” for the Zion Genealogical Society on Monday 18 February 2019? It is a “closed” webinar for the society and only shown at the society meeting that night. Cheers.

    Hi Thomas,

    How can I register for your Webinar “They’re Alive…” on February 18, 2019?

    Thank you,

    Gerry Schmidt

    Hello Thomas,
    I was fortunate to listen to your webinar at Cook Library on January 19th. Like you, I am a baby boomer. Went back to school graduated and could not find a job in my field or not in my field. I became interested in Genealogy and I am forever hooked. I am not on Facebook, and I choose not to be. Is there any other way to find information. I am not having a easy time finding my family. My Father passed away last year and there is no living relatives on his side or my Mothers side. I am at a stand still trying to find information about my Great grandparents, coming from Poland/Russia. Why didn’t we ask the questions when we had a chance! I have spend a lot of time on finding information on them not only for myself, but for my Mom. Do you have any suggestions? I have been on Ancestry many times at?
    Thank you
    Barbara Kenzer
