This is why I do what I do!
Just to say a huge thank you for your 3 excellent sessions on South African Genealogy [part of RootsTech Connect 2021]. I have now watched them all, and downloaded/saved the superb handouts for each.In addition the refresher on using FamilySearch was very helpful, as it is all too easy to just bung in names and places without understanding how the information is best accessed, and the focus you placed on using the Images facility was a great pointer.
Just recently I utilised the genealogy services of Sue McNelly to assist me in researching my South African ancestors which I had found to be almost impossible due to my very limited knowledge of the family history in that area. Sue was amazing in finding family and documents to confirm the relatives and was in contact regularly with me along the way.
I look forward to using her services again and can highly recommend her as a “go -to” for your family history research.
I thoroughly enjoyed this webinar. The presenter spoke in an even tone although not monotone and never sing-song (which is really annoying). She gave a lot of information in a short time which kept me on my toes to listen. It can be difficult to keep me engaged at 8AM! The presenter spoke to the audience and used her handout to augment her talk which is a practiced skill. Well done, I will look forward to hearing other classes by her.
Thank you for a terrific webinar. Many more sources to try.
Working with Sue on my Scottish line has been excellent. She is thorough, detailed and her final report was professional and easy to read and understand. The fact that she put me in contact with living descendants was a dream come true!
I am more than happy with the research that Ms. McNelly undertook for me. I knew very little about my ancestors in County Durham, and was thrilled with the family tree and report that I received. I highly recommend Ms. McNelly!
My toughest line by far is that of my grandfather. I knew of his life in South Africa but nothing of his life in England. Sue was able to fill in all the gaps I had! She was quickly responsive to my e-mails and provided timely reports on what stage the research was at. If you are looking for a professional genealogist who knows her stuff, Sue McNelly should be on top of your list!
