Marti uses these two great web sites in her genealogy quest and has found them extremely helpful.  Contact her at the e-mail address above today to get hands on experience with them both.


  1. Do you ever have any of these classes on weekend or late afternoon, after 4:00pm. I work and can't make the ones that are posted.

  2. Your suggestion of some mentoring sessions on other than during-the-week times is a useful one; we will discuss this at our board meeting, and perhaps we can schedule some at a more convenient time for people who have regular working hours. Thanks for the question.--Dave Martin

  3. The person who volunteers to Mentor chooses their date, time and place to provide this service. Your request is certainly valid, though. Perhaps Mentoring Volunteers will take this into account in the future.
