    I’ve been doing my family’s history for a few years and wish your books were available when I started. Everything is so structured and easy to follow. The charts are great for having everything at your fingertips, seeing how far you’ve got and what is missing.
    I will be taking them to my family history group and recommending them to other people.

    My purchase experience was good. The bonus was that when my online purchase wasn’t going through on my iPad, I could request a phone call to me. It was great to have a chat to Chris. Being able to speak to the provider of a service is first class customer service.

  11. Terry C. (Verified Customer)

    This is the guide that I wish I had two years ago when I first started my family history research — the wrong way! I reckon this book could have saved me at least eighteen months out of that two year journey.

  15. Carl Stewart (Verified Customer)

    Marilyn, thanks for the workbooks. At this stage I am still going through them. I have a lot of information both on the computer and printed. Really needs a lot more organising so I will be utilising the workbook information to sort it out.
    Is there a computer programme, eg. excel that helps in the number cataloging and cross referencing?
    I use family tree.

  42. Sandra Mulheron (Verified Customer)

  43. Brenda Hennessy (Verified Customer)

  44. Marina Terese Bennett (Verified Customer)

    I found both were informative and would be suitable not only for beginners but to the advanced researcher. My only complaint that you may consider changing should you reprint my reasoning for this is that people who have impaired vision such as macula degeneration, glaucoma or cataracts find reading light print very difficult black print on white paper is much easier to read. White print on coloured paper is also very difficult.
    I myself have macular degeneration and found the light print very difficult to read otherwise both were excellent.

  45. Dawn Matthews (Verified Customer)

    Even though I’ve been doing Family History for many years, I found your books very interesting and even picked up a few hints. Thank you

  46. Chris (Verified Customer)

  55. Colleen (Verified Customer)

  56. Rob Walker (Verified Customer)

    I purchased both books for the Wagga Wagga & District Family History Society as I think they will be a good way of introducing our members, and visitors to our research rooms, to a logical way of getting their family history files into a proper order. We recommend transcription agents where we can, and these books demonstrate what is needed.

  57. Anonymous (Verified Customer)

  58. Denise B. (Verified Customer)
