“Listening to Carol’s presentations and her advice allowed me to successfully conduct the initial research of the family trees of both my father and mother. Her guidance and encouragement helped me write a book about my mother’s genealogy–much of which had been lost with the family’s emigration to the U.S.” — Sandra Gill, Thornton
