Judy Russell.. "They are--hands down--the best speakers in the country on mapping and using maps in genealogy and their knowledge
of federal records and how to get to them while sitting at home in your bunny slippers can't be beat. Since the changeover in the
NARA new Online Public Access search system, getting a guided tour from the experts is about the next best thing to being there."
Thomas MacEntee..."Today's genealogy can often mean moving outside of your comfort zone and outside of the usual boundaries of research and resources. Rick and Pam Sayre are the perfect tour guides for such a journey of discovery. You'll be amazed at how Google Maps and Google Earth can be used as valuable reseach tools. So fasten your seat belts and get ready for your genealogy to zoom!"
