  1. I heard Lisa speak in Toronto in May and thought she was great. I bought her first version of Google Earth and I am interested in buying Vol. 2 for our family history library. However, the link you have above shows an error when I click on it.

    • Lisa – That is odd since the link works fine for me.

      Go to Lisa’s website, On the left hand side, click on “Store”. Then you’ll be able to buy the DVDs from there.

  2. Lisa, It has been a long time since we were in contact. The last I remember is that you were writing a book about your ancestors which included my grandmother Ladda. If you did complete the book I would appreciate the information on how to get a copy. It looks like you have become quite involved in genealogy as well as successful as a professional genealogist. I’m proud for you. Perhaps you can give me some direction in tracing my Ladda and Krappmann line. Take care your cousin Fred Ladda
