About Paula’s Presentations

Paula’s in-person and webinar historical and genealogical presentations are lively, yet professional and educational. A list of her upcoming presentations follows this paragraph. Paula is comfortable with her audiences, and presents practical and accurate information. Each lecture and accompanying handout material is updated prior to each presentation. She is accessible for questions at her presentations and enjoys discussing genealogy with the participants throughout the event day or as part of a webinar. The visuals and the handout material reflect research in a wide variety of locales. Her lectures have taken her to most states around the U.S., to Canada and on cruise ships! Full information on events are not posted until the sponsor and I have signed a contract.
