  2. Mark,

    Your Genealogy Research Process Map is a great resource. Is it published? Can copies be purchased? I teach part-time, the beginning Family History class at BYU and I would like my students to have copies of your chart. A laminated version of your chart would be very useful. Thanks for all you do to expand and educate the genealogical community.
    Best wishes, Kelly R. Summers, AG

  4. Hi Mark,
    I heard you talking with Lisa Louise Cooke on her podcast and I really enjoyed the interview. I couldn’t wait to get home to check out your blog. I’ll be snooping around here more often. I like the GPS and downloaded the map and of course I sent the powerpoint to my email. I can’t wait to see your presentation live! I hope you are going to the Jamboree in June. I’ll be there and it will be my first conference.

    Thank you for this tool. Hope to meet you soon!

  5. I absolutely love your genealogy research process chart. Even tho it says to download it, I got a blurry illegible picture. This would be lifesaving for me Please, if there is another way to get a copy, I would love it. If there’s a price, just ask! Althea

  10. Mark,
    I’m giving a genealogy 101 type talk at the University of Calgary next week. Would I be able to include your Genealogy Research Process Map in my presentation (with attribution to you of course).

  11. Mark,

    I will be giving a Genealogy 101 talk at a local historical house (Farmington Plantation in Louisville, Ky) on Jul 23, 2011. Would it be ok if I include a copy of your Genealogy Research Process Map – Version 2 with my handouts? I would be more than happy to give you full credit for it and have a link to your website.

    Keep up the great work!

  13. Hi Mark,

    After reading the above comments it sounds like I an not the only one that loves your GPS map. I teach the beginning research class at the local Family History Center. I would like to obtain notebook size copies for each of the class participants. Are they available and if so where do I go to purchase them?

  15. Mark, I just sent you a message on Facebook, but I will post my request here as well. I am writing a course and would like to receive your written permission to include a link to your Genealogy Research Process Map. The students will have to come here to download their own copy, but I would like to include the link in the handout I’m creating.
    Thank you.
