“Dear Ms. Culbertson, Thank you for all the wonderful research you did for our family. It's fascinating to see the copies of those old documents. Someday I hope to go to Arendal, which from the pictures I've seen, looks so beautiful. Thank you again!”

“We wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for your RESEARCH LINKS page on your website.  My daughter Sam's 6th grade final history project is on genealogy, and your page has been so helpful to her. She's an extremely hard-worker, and has been tirelessly researching this project for the past week. Your resources combined with her effort is sure to get her a winning mark.”

“I can't begin to tell you how much it meant that both Jerry and John took time from their busy schedule and work to help in the search for Knud (a family member I've been searching for since almost my beginnings in researching my own family!). What a gift to receive this information! Words don't express what's in my heart. Please tell Jerry and John what their research has meant to not only me, but my children and their children. Enclosed is the promised donation I want to give as a thank you for Jerry and John's exceptional work. Thank you!”

“Your information was in the afternoon mail. I will gratefully mail a check tomorrow. Thank you so much. The 1844 date for Daniel’s date of birth was passed down from family members. You have the correct man. I loved this search but ran into a brick wall! Finding you was just awesome! Thank you so much. I am definitely interested in continuing this genealogy search as funds permit.”

- Lorna (California)

“I want to thank Carol Culbertson her research on John Olson. I do believe she found the correct person in the area in Pennsylvania where he appears to have resided.”
