"I am so thrilled at all of the "Treasure Maps". I will have lots to read and get into my mind the direction I need to go. With Treasure Maps I feel a sense of direction. I have read many tips on genealogy but I'm impressed with the way you explain the ins and outs. I haven't had that feeling of feeling lost before I start. Thank you for the clarity of your messages and keep up the good work! Will look forward to future issues." (Joyce Medina) more
