"The more we can support shows of this nature and quality, the better in my estimation. They make history come alive and as Lisa said gives me an appreciation for what my ancestors endured. I like to think I have benefitted from their sacrifices and it has helped make me the person I am. As always, thanks for your informative podcasts. I can hear the smile in your voice and your enthusiasm is catching. Keep it up!"

"I work at the Family History center in Brookfield, Wisconsin. I am currently teaching our consultants how to use Roots Magic 4 in an effort to transfer their huge PAF files onto New Family Search. I have been looking at different information regarding the upcoming NBC show "Who Do You Think You Are" and came across this page. I am very interested in learning new searching tools to help our staff and patrons without paying the high cost of conferences. Thanks for all you are doing."
