On behalf of the Pikes Peak Genealogical Society, Terry and I wanted to thank you for your excellent presentation on "Historic Voices: Bringing Genealogy to Life". Our members and attendees really enjoyed your presentation and your thorough knowledge of the topic. We really do appreciate you taking the time to come and talk to our group. We know there are many other things that you do that occupy your time and we really enjoyed you taking your time and spending it with us.

I received many laudatory compliments regarding your presentation and it seems our members and guests did gain a lot out of your talk.

Once again, thank you for spending time with us and sharing your extensive knowledge about bringing your ancestors to life through writing. It was a pleasure listening to a professional and entertaining presentation.
