This was a wonderful conference with lots of handouts from all the speakers and from “Friends of the National Archives”.

    Wish I was closer so that I could attend in person, but that won’t happen soon. Being an email member, though, is nearly as good. I have received such terrific assistance and some new places to explore, which have put new zip into my research. Thank you to all the members for your ongoing work and dedication. I so appreciate you!
