Megan's Speaking Report Card

I'm not sure why, but I rarely receive feedback from the evaluations that event planners often solicit from attendees. But the organizers of the New England Regional Genealogical Conference I spoke at were kind enough to share the results with me. I've decided to post them here because I know many folks are intimidated by genetic genealogy, so I wanted to show that it truly is possible to enjoy a lecture or two on the topic! Many thanks to the generous participants for giving me good grades!
