"If you've never used Cyndi's List, get over there and check it out. When I began researching over 15 years ago, the site was shared with me by my friend and mentor, Birdie Holsclaw. What a treasure trove!" --Cari T.
"Cyndi's list is a sledge hammer for brick walls. Your site has lead me to find great resources just clicking around." --Karen P.
"You've been the lamppost in the wilderness guiding us through genealogy for more than a decade." --Katherine J.
"Yours is one of the first sites I recommend in my classes. Always have. Always will. From the time I first became aware of your site and met you at an OGS Conference, I knew this was one site that genealogists could not do without. I point every new genealogist I meet to your site. And, if I'm teaching some seasoned genealogists, I point them again to your site so they don't forget the vast resources you have collected. One time, as I was preparing a lecture, I was stymied on the subject of school records. I went through my own sources, then decided to check in again with yours. In the few days between when I had first looked and when I looked again, you had added more links that filled in a necessary gap I was trying to fill. I tell my classes that if they don't start out with your web site, they will end up there. It fills a need that far outshines anything like it. Thank you so much for the labor of love you have kept at for so many years. You may never know how many people you have helped discover their ancestors." --Peggy L.
