We were pleased to have Carol McCoy as a speaker (Making the Most of the Census in Your Research) at our 2007 conference. She is a dynamic speaker whose enthusiasm in genealogical research is readily apparent and contagious. Carol's delivery of material, no matter its complexity, is well-grounded and straightforward. Her presentations are very easy to relate to because she makes extensive use of real-life experiences and examples to illustrate the subject matter. I have sat in on a couple presentations by Carol at other events and would pretty much sum up the experience as "Exciting and Motivating!"

Every family is unique.
Dr. McCoy's mission is to help people discover:
