You have Genealogy classes all over but never in Tennessee. Any Reason.

Don - we'd love to teach some Legacy classes in Tennessee. We usually do them in cooperation with a local genealogy society. If your society is interested in having us speak on Legacy, or even present a half-day seminar on genealogy technology, please let us know.

How about coming to New York State? All of your seminars are too far away for me to attend one.
