When you need help, it’s time to call in the experts.  If you’re looking to harness the power of Ancestry.com to it’s fullest potential, you’re going to want to make a date with Lou.

Loretto Dennis “Lou” Szucs, or as I call have dubbed her, “the great, all-knowing, and entirely entertaining Lou” is presenting “Ancestry.com and Beyond” at this year’s FVGS Conference on Saturday, September 29, 2012.

FVGS 2012 Conference features Juliana Smith and Loretto Dennis “Lou” Szucs as they present four one-hour programs:
