"Thank you for your splendid presentation on searching for German ancestors.  Many members commented to me after the program about how much they enjoyed it.  One lady even called me Sunday morning to say how much she appreciated it.  This lady had been ill for some time and has missed several meetings but she made a special effort to come and hear you speak and said she was very glad she did.  She was grateful for the amount of information and research guidance included in the presentation." -- Program Chairman, San Diego Genealogical Society

"Thank you for your most informative and helpful presentation.  You certainly held the attention of the audience and the many questions demonstrated how involved the listeners had become in your subject.  Last Saturday, I was the volunteer on duty at the genealogy section at the Ventura Foster Library.  Several members were there using the Hinshaw volumes, which most of us did not even know that we had.  I found one of my Coleman families and I thought they had been Baptists forever." -- Program Chairman, Ventura County Genealogical Society

"Thank You so much for taking your time to come and speak at our seminar.  Your class on German Research was very well receivedand the comments very favorable." -- Chairman, Genealogical Seminar, Hemet, California

"On behalf of OCCGS, I would like to extend our thanks for your interesting, informative and entertaining presentation on 'Researching in Germany.'  Personally, I enjoyed you very much and in observing our membership it was evident that they did too.  I am very glad my predecessor had the good taste to schedule you." -- Program Chairman, Orange County California Genealogical Society

"Thank you for your participation as a speaker in our Family History Fair.  We feel that it was very successful and that this success was directly related to the valuable classes given.  We appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge and skill in family history research." -- Chairman, Family History Fair, Orange, California Family History Center

"Your presentation to the society was well received by the members.  The caveats in "Uses and Misuse of the Census" made us realize that even Uncle Sam's records can be either misleading or downright incorrect.  May favorable comments were heard, along with hopes that we shall be hearing you speak again some day." -- Secretary, Questing Heirs Genealogical Society

"Thank you for the informative talk to our society on Research in New England and Atlantic States."-- Secretary, South Bay Cities Genealogical Society

Special Appreciation Award:  "Presented to Leland Earl Pound for his tireless work in gathering names, dates, stories and pictures of the Hornbuckle Family and his unselfish sharing of all that he has discovered.  His work has created a link between our ancestors and us. -- Hornbuckle Reunion 2000 Committee
