- An incredible amount covered in such a short time. Excellent content. Thomas is such a good speaker.
- Best one yet!
- Tons of great information and examples of websites to use to help organize research! Great Job!
- Excellent overview. As a "power user" I knew about some of the tools, but not all, and I learned new things about familiar websites.
- Excellent. Learned so much more than today's topic alone. I really enjoy the extra tidbits Thomas MacEntee presents and that he is so generous in sharing his resources! Pleasure to participate in his webinars!!
- Fantastic...but my head is spinning. I thought I was organized, but this webinar has prooved me WRONG! Now to get to work on redoing my thought process and get Organized. Thank you so very much for this opportunity.
- Great info. I wish you had done this one long ago.
- Great information, as always! Every webinar seems to have a few 'jewels' that absolutely make it worth taking the time to watch the webinar. I'd add that it is also worth watching 'again and again' via the DVDs.
- Great!! I got lots of terrific info out of this webinar! Loved the tip on passwords as well as discussion on various storage containers. Thank you!
- I always hope to learn something, but today my expectations were exceeded. i learned a lot - even with regard to things I'm already using. Great presenter, great info.
- I loved the password trick! Thanks!
- It sure beats windows favorites for organizing links. Once I build my genealogy research toolbox, I am going to build one for each of my other hobbies.
- Many new and VERY useable sites given, esp. Evernote, Weebly, and the Link Valet!
- I wish I had this info when I started my research. A MUST FOR ALL, NOT JUST GENEALOGIST!
- Thrilled with the excellent presentation by Thomas MacEntee. I learned lots and will certainly be purchasing the CD for future reference. Questions asked by the audience were also helpful; Thomas was very professional but always very friendly and honest with his responses. He and Geoff Rasmussen worked well together.
- Very interesting. I now have a much better idea of how to set up my favourites, bookmarks, etc. and will be checking out several of the options presented. Thank you very much for the webinar.
