I hesitate to write this because we've had so many terrific webinars, but I think today's webinar by Megan Smolenyak could top the list as the best we've ever had (sorry Thomas, Lisa, Karen, Linda, Michael, Mary, Kathryn, Marian, Maureen, and so many others - it was just...that...good...)!
Megan's "Annie Moore of Ellis Island: A Case of Historical Identity Theft" not only pulled at every viewer's heart strings, but she taught plenty of genealogy methodology and showed the results that persistence brings.
