What people are saying

Once again I am writing to thank you for your excellent presentation during our genealogy workshop.
James R. Johnson, Memphis & Shelby County Public Library & Information Center
Earnest’s class on African American Research added depth and value to our conference. The beginners as well as the seasoned genealogist found much to help and encourage them.
Sandra Shirley, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
Earnest knows what he’s talking about when it comes to family history and family business. Time spent with Earnest Lacey is time well spent.
